The National Institute for Earth Physical Research and Development (INCDFP) reports:
Dana 15.11.2013. At 19:38:07 (time in Romania), an earthquake of 2.8 on the Richter scale at 124km depth occurred in the Vrancea seismic area, the county of Vrancea.
The earthquake occurred near the following cities: Covasna (41 km), Slanic-Moldova (44 km), Nehoiu (46 km), Turgu Ocna (49 km), Targu Secuiesc (50 km)
We recall that experts from the Earth Sciences Institute recently made a simulation of propagation of seismic waves, in which areas it can be the most victims and where most buildings will collapse in the event of an earthquake of great size.
"In the event of an earthquake, we have information about earthquake parameters in real time. In fact, we can announce power for 25 seconds before a strong wave is coming to Bucharest, after which earthquake parameters, such as the one in the scenario, of 7.5 degrees in depth 140 kilometers.
We can estimate what was the distribution of intensity in the territory, on the epicentral area, so that, depending on the intensity, we can estimate the damage on the building buildings.
The Vrancea area is most affected by the perception of earthquake and intensity at the local level. After that it is distributed to Buzau, in the north.
If the earthquake was at night, all the population would be in residential buildings, and then the number of victims would be much higher than if an earthquake occurred and everyone would be at work. As you know, schools or public institutions are built at a high level of intensity compared to residential buildings.
On the preventive side, it would be better to focus on how we act in the earthquake. Let's not get out of the building when we feel the earthquake to find the safest place in our home, "said Corina Matlinschi, a specialist at the Earth Physics Institute in Antena 3.
Also this autumn, engineer Kovacs Erik Iulian recently claimed that he discovered a safe way to predict earthquakes. According to her, several hours before the earthquake, when the voltage accumulated between the tectonic plates exceeds the critical value, tectonic plates begin to vibrate and emit noise waves, infesting at a frequency between 4.5-5 Hz.
Kovacs claims that these infras are transmitted underground and that human ear can not experience them, and who only hear sounds with frequencies between 20 Hz – 20000 Hz.
Infrasuns are perceived by different species of animals that have different behaviors before a major earthquake.
While pre-inflammatory infractions are transmitted underground, microbarometers are not used by seismologists, as microbarometers monitor the infra-red fluctuations of the atmosphere.
Sensors should be placed underground, and this site provides the possibility of detecting pre-inflammatory infrazones for several hours before the earthquake, Kovacs says.
