In Japan, there have been a day over 20 earthquake aftershock

In Japan, for the last day (March 18, 2011 in Tokyo, began at 17:00 on Kiev) was more than 20 aftershock earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.5 to 6.1. Such information is contained in the online materials the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). All the earthquakes were concentrated on the eastern coast of the main Japanese island of Honshu, that is in the area where the March 11 was the most powerful in the country's history, an earthquake of magnitude 9. As a result of today's aftershock did not have a tsunami threat, new destructions are not informed.

Earth itself to drop can not

Russian scientists deny that the Earth's axis is tilted. Reports that a series of strong earthquakes that began on March 11 in Japan shifted the earth's axis, excited people from different countries.

According to published estimates of scientists from Italy, America and the UK due to earthquakes axis of rotation of the planet could be displaced by 10, 15 or even 25 cm In addition, according to scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA, based in Pasadena, California, the shift has led to a reduction in the length of the day 1.6 microseconds, which may affect the inhabitants of the

Land in Finland shook unusually strongly

In Finland, on Tuesday night there was an unusually strong earthquake for the area.

Seismological agency has recorded Puolanka (Puolanko) earthquake with a magnitude of 2.1. Later, it was clarified that the magnitude was 2.

Jari Kortstrem seismologist said the newspaper "Iltasanomat" ("Iltasamoat" — "Evening News") that earthquakes of such force is very rare in Finland. "Their strength is from one or two in a few years," — he continued on.

Over the last year in Finland recorded 34 earthquakes.

The strongest earthquake since 1965 was February 17, 1979 in Alajärvi (Alajarvi), its magnitude was 3.8.

Geophysics can not yet be predicted seismic forecast — scientist

The present state of seismological science does not allow scientists to give short-term earthquake prediction, as weather forecasts, which could serve as a guide for authorities and businessmen, told RIA Novosti, Alexei Zavyalov Professor, Head of Laboratory of continental seismicity and seismic hazard forecasting the Institute of Physics of the Earth RAS named Schmidt .

"The current state of science on the nature of earthquakes has not reached a level to give a cost-effective forecasts", — said the source.

He explained that the economic sense are short-term forecasts, when the date of occurrence of a hazardous event is defined clearly

A powerful earthquake in Japan has affected (VIDEO). Tsunami came to Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands

Japan Earthquake: Powerful aftershocks were recorded in the north-east coast of the country. Data on the magnitude of the disaster vary — according to some sources, the force pushes the level of 7.9 points, while the U.S. Geological Survey reported an earthquake of 8.9 points. Another earthquake measuring 7.4 points occurred later in the Miyagi prefecture. According to local media reports, three people were killed and dozens injured.

 

The data come from the destruction of many areas, including Tokyo and adjacent port city of Yokohama, on which there are black clouds of smoke from

Scientists predict an earthquake in Moscow

Following Japan, scientists predict a small earthquake in Moscow. According to experts, the strength of earthquakes can be 5 on the Richter scale. The fact that the Earth is now entered a phase of high seismic activity, so these developments and opportunities. In direct contact with the studio "Vesti FM" deputy director of the Institute of Physics of the Earth. Schmidt Yevgeny Rogozhin.

Rogozhin: None of what the Richter scale no one says it is just about the score on the macroseismic scale. 5 on the Richter scale — this is a very big event. This will not be in

Earthquake of magnitude 5.3 occurred in the east of Indonesia

An earthquake measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale occurred on Friday morning in the eastern part of the Indonesian archipelago, no tsunami threat, RIA Novosti reported at the National Directorate of Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (NUMKG) of Indonesia.

Quake epicenter was located at 117 km south-west of the island of Ternate in the province of North Moluccas. Its center was located at a depth of ten kilometers from the surface of the Molucca Sea. No casualties or damage have been reported yet.

Indonesia is the most seismically active area of the planet and is part of the so-called Pacific Ring

The Kuril Islands earthquake with magnitude 4.1

4.1 magnitude earthquake reported on Tuesday night in the Kuril Islands.

According to the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the epicenter of the earthquake was located in the Pacific Ocean on the beam Simushir desert island, the center lies at a depth of 50 km beneath the ocean floor.

On the inhabited islands of the Kuril impulse is not felt, no tsunami threat, according to ITAR-TASS.

According to the Sakhalin Tsunami Warning Center, catastrophic waves can be generated by earthquakes with a magnitude of at least 7.0.

Japanese disaster: the scale of the problems growing

Japanese disaster — this is definitely the number one topic. In the next three days, seismologists predict a new wave of underground beats at least seven points. The painting, which opened after the first wave, is truly horrifying.

If you go from Tokyo to the north, the disaster zone begins somewhere in the 120-130 km from the capital. Specifically, there was a small tsunami — only five feet, but even that was enough to turn the coastal street in a pile of ruins.

With every kilometer ride gets harder and eventually the road stops. Next — the

Close to the coast of Japan, a new wave of a tsunami

New tsunami 3 meters closer to the coast of the Japanese prefecture of Fukushima. Its registered helicopter fire departments of the country. Authorities urged people to immediately move away from the coast. Tsunamis are also on the coast of Miyagi Prefecture and the city of Aomori Hachinohe. Because of the approaching tsunami ordered the emergency evacuation received nearly 13,000 residents of Fukushima Prefecture, Miyagi and Aomori in the north-east coast of the main Japanese island of Honshu. On the hill were also emerging garrisons stationed there's armed forces. Last Friday, March 11, in Japan there was a
