The next blow elements predict California


14.03.11.Katastroficheskoe Japanese earthquake — the most powerful ever recorded in this country — should make think America, which can be in the coming years under the impact of elements of similar size. Frequent earthquakes of great strength will be observed in all seismically active areas, but an earthquake of great power in the next 30 years could destroy Southern California, and its main city and capital of the world film industry in Los Angeles in general can be wiped off the face of the earth.

On these frightening forecasts against the Japanese disaster reminded professor at American University in

10.10.12.Vchera Burznyaskom afternoon in the area of Bashkiria was recorded underground tolchok.K Fortunately, an earthquake was not strong.

— Our area does not apply to an earthquake-prone zones. Tremor was associated with geodynamic disturbances that led to swelling or collapse in the depths of the earth's crust — said specialist for Civil Protection and Emergency Management Administration Burzian district Azamat Dautov.

According to him, the push was not strong and serious earthquakes in the region can not be.

Recall that in September a similar incident occurred in Uchalinsky area.

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust Facts

In the north-western Pacific Ocean are quite serious tectonic events. From the Cascadia subduction zone, where the tectonic plate of Juan de Fuca is moving under the North American plate, and to the fault zone near Seattle, where 1,100 years ago the real earthquake happened to 7, there was the risk of renewed seismic activity.

The figure shows five areas paleoseysmicheskoy activity (red circles) and three Holocene fault (solid red lines).

Approximately 60 km north of the described location and located close to the extremely dangerous fault in

Fast tsunami warning system with GPS

Fast tsunami warning system with GPS Scientists prove

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
