This was warned by specialists from the Romanian Institute for Earth Physics.
According to them, after the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile danger looming over the so-called "zone of Vrancea," which is on the border of Ukraine and Romania in the Carpathian Mountains. This site has already made itself felt in 1940, 1977, 1986 and 1990.
By the force of a new earthquake "Vrancea area" will be more powerful than the element in 1977, while in Bucharest killed 15,000 people.
"The epicenter will be deep in the earth, and the more — the more powerful the earthquake. Feel it even in Moscow", — said the director of the Institute of Physics of the Earth Romanian Gheorghe Mermuryanu.
The danger for Ukraine lies in its soil. Magnitude 6 on the Richter scale on the border with Romania could result in eight or nine points on dvenadtsatiballnoy scale, almost as in Haiti, reports TSN expert opinion.
