Earth prepares humanity new trial

The catastrophic earthquake that struck on March 11 off the northeast coast of Japan has caused many weak (less than 3 magnitude) earthquakes around the world, reports Livescientist.

They were mostly recorded in seismic regions — in the Taiwan area, the Aleutian Islands, in Canada, in the U.S. states of Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California. Much more interesting for experts was the fact that the Japanese cataclysm caused aftershocks where nothing like previously observed, such as Cuba. Aftershocks were also reported in areas where earthquakes happen, but with very small magnitudes — in the outskirts of Beijing and the

Liquefaction of soils increased destruction in Japan

Earthquake in Japan would not have caused such catastrophic damage if they were not accompanied by an unusually strong liquefaction of soils in an area of hundreds of square kilometers. This is the conclusion of a team of researchers at Oregon State University, who worked on the site of earthquakes.

Due to the fact that the earth has suddenly become unstable, many buildings moved from their seats, tilt and partially left in the soil, although they are not directly earthquake damaged. Shifts diluted soil destroyed not only buildings, but also water, sewer and gas pipelines in the number of
