Researchers who study signs of seismic activity, said the danger in the known fault.
According to the staff of the U.S. Geological survey that is now in the world famous fault San Andreas fault were formed preconditions for future devastating aftershocks. This point on earth is located in California and is one of the most dangerous lines on the Blue planet. About it reports the edition Liga news Russia.
First in the Pacific ring of fire happened a 7.7-magnitude earthquake.
The rift is constantly shaken by small tremors, but they do not relieve the enormous tension that create the Pacific and North American tectonic plates, when between them is friction. Experts said that the last decade was marked by the expectation mahasammata.
According to Thomas Rockwell, the expected time of the devastating natural disaster has passed since San Andreas powerful earthquakes occur every 180 years. Estimates say that the recent seismic activity in this region was discovered 380 years ago. At the moment, seismologists can’t understand what is delaying the output element out.
