The area around SSHGES continue to shake

The earthquake, which occurred on Thursday, February 10, was the worst in half a century near the power plant. Scientists say that the next month or two, the area around the epicenter will continue to shake. For small shocks, are likely to follow a few three or four-point earthquake, followed by a smaller again.

"Release of the energy in the earthquake on February 10 was just tremendous: it is comparable in strength to the force of a bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 20 kilotons — leads Academ.info words of Victor Seleznev, doctor of geological-mineralogical sciences, director of the Geophysical Service

The shocking truth about SSHGES

3 zones of earthquake sources around SSHGES caused by three faults that run parallel to each other along the Western Sayan. These zones are called Sayano-Tuva (130 km from the Sayano, figure 1), Bolsheporozhskaya (60 km from the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, figure 2) and Borusskaya (10 km from the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, figure 3). The most terrible is to SSHGES Borussky hearth, as the closest, it was not long ago earthquake. Many earthquakes began to occur in 2007 on the first fault, the most distant of the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP. www.tuvaonline.ru/2008/11/03/2000_earthquakes.html www.tuvaonline.ru/2008/06/04/4541_quaik.html www.tuvaonline.ru/2007/01/16/zemlia-teeli.html www.tuvaonline.ru/2005/04/20/zenletriasenie.html

Experts predict re earthquake in the East Sayan Mountains

An earthquake measuring about four points could occur before the end of March in the Eastern Sayan Mountains in the Krasnoyarsk region, told reporters on Friday the head of the regional center of seismological monitoring Nicholas Pilimonkin. 5.5 magnitude earthquake with an epicenter in the Krasnoyarsk region occurred on Thursday at 8.35 MSK. Its magnitude was 5.3 points, the force pushes the epicenter reached seven points. In Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul Propulsion was 2-3 points, Minusinsk — 3-4, in Kansk, Kemerovo and Novosibirsk — three points. "In the next two months in the Eastern Sayan possible seismic activity. Force aftershocks could reach

Seismologists have recorded five of the Altai Republic of aftershocks after the earthquake Ermakovskogo

As reported altapress.ru employees seismic Ust Cana (Altai Republic), after the earthquake, which occurred in the area Ermakovsky Krasnoyarsk February 10 at 12:35 (time Krasnoyarsk), instruments recorded five aftershocks, aftershocks
