The capital city of New Zealand threatens massive tsunami

September 28, 2013. Scientists from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research of New Zealand warned that the nation's capital, the city of Wellington, in the event of an earthquake with magnitude of at least 7 threatens massive tsunami.

Tremors of such force to cause a massive landslide in the canyon, which is located at the bottom of the Cook Strait, 10 km from the coastal areas of the city. Derailment of land just can cause a wave that hit the capital in 12 minutes after the earthquake.

FEMA: passion around contrived earthquakes?

Following the near-meltdown of a nuclear reactor in Japan last week, Washington's attention quickly shifted to its own policy of the federal government's response to emergencies. Given the failures of response of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Hereinafter referred to FEMA — approx. Mixednews), by hurricane "Katrina", there is concern about the country's preparedness for catastrophic disasters. According to Marc Ambinder of the National Journal, «if an earthquake of magnitude 9 points occur in the Midwest," Will the United States be better equipped to answer than Japan? ".

Such a disaster is very possible, at least from the point of

West Pakistan was struck by another earthquake of magnitude 6.8

September 29, 2013. In the south-west Pakistan in an area where this week earthquake has killed at least 400 people, there was a new seismic cataclysm of magnitude 6.8.

According to reports, the most affected district Avaran, killing at least 12 people.

As stated by one of the officials of the Pakistani television station, the message already has been interrupted due to a previous earthquake, completely broken.

Attempts to help people left homeless are difficult because of impassable roads and the actions of local separatists.

According to U.S. seismologists, new tremors were felt throughout the province of Baluchistan.

According

In the Arabian Sea because of the earthquake, a new island

September 24, 2013 in the south-west of Pakistan about 16:30 local time, an earthquake. Magnitude 7.8 quake was, and the epicenter was in the Balochistan — the least populated province of the country. In this case, the tremors were felt in Karachi and in the Indian cities of Hyderabad and Delhi.

The disaster killed several hundred people. Many houses were destroyed — for example, in the district Avaran hit 90 percent of all buildings. But the earthquake was one more thing — the unexpected — consequence: in the Arabian Sea near the Pakistani city of Gwadar island rose out

Scientists: Accurate short-term earthquake prediction and efficient — really

Seismologists say that it is impossible to solve the problem of accurate determination of the three main parameters of a future earthquake. However, the reason for this in the "Platonic" approach to the genesis of earthquakes.

Seismologists tend closer to the sites of the future epicenter, but "face to face" can not see and judge correctly. Physicists who study the cosmos, astronomers, statisticians use the gravitational connection planets, but do not reach the opening mechanism of the impact of these forces on the future epicenter of the earthquake.

In the Haifa lab after a long period of research, this relationship

Why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not?

Why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not? It is interesting

Magnitude 9 earthquake off the coast of Sumatra on 26 December 2004 caused a powerful tsunami, which took place around the Indian Ocean. March 11, 2011 in the east of the Japanese island of Honshu, an earthquake measuring 8.9, provoked a tsunami 10 meters high. U.S. National Weather Service warned of the danger of over 50 countries and territories within the Pacific Ocean. In particular, the tsunami waves have left their mark in the Hawaiian Islands. So why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not?
