East Tajikistan cut off from the country due to the earthquake

Tajikistan to the east by the earthquake that occurred yesterday morning, was cut off from the center of the country and its capital, told RIA Novosti press center of Ministry of Transport and Communications.

"At the 23-kilometer highway connecting the east and center of the country, came rockslide that destroyed more than 150 meters of road," — said the source.

According to him, the height of the stone debris ranges from four to six meters. At the epicenter of an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 were three areas Pamir — Nurabad, Rasht and Tavildara.

Scientists predict seismic attenuation in northern Sakhalin

Specialists of the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics (IMGG) Sakhalin, Far East Branch informed that the seismic activity recorded in the north of Sakhalin from October 2012 to January 2013, does not exceed the long-term observation and will gradually fade over time, the press service of the institute.

This information announced at the regular meeting Sakhalin branch of the Russian expert advice on earthquake prediction, seismic hazard assessment and risk Laboratory Head of Seismology Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics (IMGG) FEB RAS Ivan Tikhonov.

The scientist said that from 21 October 2012 to January 2013 in the south-east

In Hokkaido, a powerful earthquake

At least ten people living in the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, were injured in the incident of the earthquake, which had a magnitude of 6.9, the coordinates of 42,7 ° N; 143,3 ° E, and depth of the epicenter 120 km. Those Japanese who required medical treatment, were taken to hospital.

In the area of propulsion are two nuclear power plants, so check their administration building for possible damage. Because of the quake halted the work of several important railway lines and highways in Hokkaido. Echoes of the capital's residents felt the earthquake Hokkaido Sapporo and residents of

Earthquake of magnitude 6.4 occurred in Hokkaido, Japan

Earthquake of magnitude 6.4 occurred on the northern island of Hokkaido in Japan, no tsunami threat, said the country's Meteorological Agency.

Earthquakes have been recorded 23.17 local time (18.17 MSK). The earthquake lies at a depth of 120 kilometers under the surface of the land.

Reports of destruction and deaths have been reported yet.

An earthquake measuring 5.5 points in Iran

A small earthquake shook a small town in western Iran near the Iraqi page. According to preliminary data from the Iranian media, injured eight people, the buildings were seriously damaged.

Magnitude of the earthquake was 5.5 points in the sparsely populated area near the city Mourmouri, about 480 km. south-west of the capital Tehran. The statement also said that the people in the earthquake jumped out of their homes in Mourmouri and ran away from them. Were also damaged buildings in neighboring cities and Abdanan Dehloran. Over the past few weeks there have been several dozen earthquakes that were completely

Earthquake in the Inland Empire

Inland Empire is Southern California with a population of 4 million people. In those days, local residents are in constant fear and excitement from recurrent small earthquakes. Over the weekend several earthquakes occurred near Devore, Idyllwild and Indio. Earthquake in Devore on Saturday morning reached the level of 3.8 points. Recent tremors were near the San Andreas fault, which can become even greater.

For comments addressed to the professor from UC Riverside and an expert on earthquakes Gareth Faningu. They produced estimates of shocks over the same period last year, as a result it was that in the last year

Fast tsunami warning system with GPS

In underground earthquakes that could cause a tsunami, the time allotted for coastal warning of the danger, is very short. However, based on data from the Fukushima earthquake, which occurred March 11, 2011, scientists from the GFZ German Research Centre have shown that by the earthquake and its location can be determined with three minutes to quickly and accurately transfer the information to the ground of the possibility of a tsunami.

Such operations can make a special GPS-network that is configured to work in potentially dangerous areas. She is able to capture and display even the movement of tectonic plateau.

The GPS system can be used for notification of earthquakes

According to researchers, the union of two data sources can provide high accuracy data for alerts about earthquakes in seismic areas of the Western United States.

At the annual meeting of the Seismological Society of America in San Diego, it was noted that the association of GPS data with data collected through an extensive network of seismometers will allow more accurate data for early warning of strong earthquakes.

Currently, seismometers are the only source of information used for these purposes. Seismometers in the immediate vicinity of the epicenter of the earthquake can determine its strength and send this data
