Seismologists expect an earthquake in Simferopol

Crimean capital is a 7-point zone. As told "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Chairman of the Crimean Council expert on seismic hazard Bella Pustovitenko, catastrophes on the peninsula are rare, but possible earthquake.

— Of course, it will be. Such is the nature of our region. When there is an earthquake, hard to say. To powerful earthquake should undergo a process of accumulation of energy that spills over in an earthquake — told Bella Gavrilovna. — Builders must take this into account, so the new buildings should be constructed in accordance with regulations. In Crimea always earthquakes, but they are weak and are

In Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands may be an earthquake of magnitude 7 on the Richter scale

In Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands may be an earthquake of magnitude 7 on the Richter scale and the possible catastrophic consequences, such as the earthquake in Haiti in early 2010 goda.Vopros in when this happens?

The earthquake, which occurred in the Netherlands, it was nothing compared to what lies ahead. According to geologist Ronald van Baalen (Ronald van Baalen, University of Amsterdam), this is not a question of "if" but a question of "when" a very large earthquake hit the country?

In this case, particularly affected the province of Limburg and Liège. "The eastern part of

Geophysics can not yet predict earthquakes

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

Earthquake in the Czech Republic

Earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred in the Czech Republic in the town of Cheb. According to seismologists, Czech, it was one of the most powerful earthquakes in the country over the last 100 years. Fatalities and serious destructions.

Experts do not rule out that earthquakes of magnitude up to 4 could be repeated in the near future. Cheb is located in a seismically active zone. The strongest earthquake of magnitude 5 was recorded here in 1908, the year.
