June 16. Geophysics from Kiev recorded in this area Carpathians small shift the earth's crust — five-kilometer crack. The third week with a well in the yard of Vyacheslav Nikitin's something strange going on. It boils water. Icy mountain thicker than water warmed to 55-60 degrees, and then continues to heat up.
— One day I noticed that, watering flowers and greenery in the yard, I did not get cold hands, — said Vyacheslav Nikitin, Chief Medical Officer Vizhnitskogo district. — I pump water from the well pump. So, holding the hose all the time changed hands — so the water was ice cold. And then suddenly, this need has disappeared. Of course, I was surprised, but did not pay much attention to it. And two weeks ago, on Saturday morning, which went through a hose yellow-yellow liquid. The water is getting warmer and warmer. Thought can boost … But in vain.
In the yard, two local men are busy master, Michael and Nicholas, who assists with minor external repairs.
— We're just two weeks of work, — said Mikhail. — When I first came here, Mr. Vyacheslav we said, 'Something's wrong with my pit — the water there is cushy … "Well, it is better to wash in warm water than in cold. And in two weeks the water became even hotter, so once it has hands and pomoesh — bakes. If things go well — for a few weeks, this well will begin to boil.
A few days ago, Mr. Vyacheslav measured the temperature of the water — it was about 55 degrees. When the owner removes the cap from the well — well you can see how the water is smoking.
— It's in the well, the water cools down, because when you swing it — it rises still hot, — said Vyacheslav. — I have, among other things, a very good well. We dug it back in 1998, 11 meters deep. Previously meter of water, now he's got half a meter. Whatever the drought was not ever the water does not drop. People around the well to 25 meters deep. And when there was no rain, the water level in them fell, people literally scooped her out, she even became brackish.
The nearest neighbors Vyacheslav surprised: they have water — ice, and he — hot … Mr. Nikitin already done all sorts of tests: radonometriyu, radiology, chemical analysis — all within the normal range, the water in the well is good, transparent, that's just — hot.
— I often say, "And you, probably, the engine warms …" Well this is what it is necessary to have a "boiler" to yourself as to heat water? I shake my water pump "The Kid." Already in the paper and looked at it. They, among other things, water, hot 50 degrees, do not swing.
Through friends in Kiev doctor talked to geophysicists. They say their instruments in this field Carpathians fixed a small crustal shift, it seems that somewhere under the ground formed a "small", about five-kilometer, crack.
— They have said such a thing — it's usually the harbingers of earthquakes advised to follow the animals do not get out there where snakes, etc. I'm not talking to not to sow panic.
Meanwhile vizhnichane practical advice of a doctor to his home free heating or even arrange in his yard, "spa bath".
Comments of experts:
Bogdan is welcome, associate professor of the Faculty of Geography CNU.
— Hot water — is a consequence of volcanic phenomena. In general, they are harbingers of certain changes in the Earth's crust.
Andrei Nikolayev, director of the Geophysical Laboratory CNU.
— Tectonic movements in the Carpathian Mountains — a phenomenon familiar. After all, these are young mountains, and they are growing. So on the whole Carpathian territory is divided into blocks, faults, extending the ground both parallel and perpendicular. Most likely, there was a shift of these blocks, through which began receiving thermal waters. Our experts are aware of this. But I have to calm down, that this phenomenon is not mandatory sign that an earthquake or other natural disaster.
