KRASNODAR, December 13 (Itar-Tass) – Seismic situation in Russia’s southern Krasnodar territory remains within the norm and the provocative rumors on a possible earthquake there contradict reality, the territorial division of the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ said in an address to the local population Thursday.
“Provocative rumors on a new earthquake, which is ostensibly upcoming, are spreading in Krasnodar and cities and districts of the territory,” the press service of the EMERCOM branch said. “Thursday alone, the crisis counseling hotline received about a hundred calls from agitated residents of our territory.”
In connection with this, the rescue agency quoted an operative forecast drafted by the Territorial Center for Monitoring and Forecasting Natural Calamities and Manmade Disasters, which says that the seismic situation in the Krasnodar territory, a vital region in Southern Russia, remains within the norm and any provocative rumors stand at variance with reality.
A quake measuring 4.8 points on the open-ended Richter scale was registered at nighttime December 10. It epicenter was located 34 kilometers to the northwest of Novorossiysk, a major port on the Black Sea, and the seismic focus was initially identified at the depth of about 10 kilometers below the surface of the Earth.
Tremors measuring between 3.0 and 4.0 points were registered in the cities of Anapa, Krasnodar, Krymsk, Novorossiysk, Slavyansk-on-Kuban, and Gelendzhik.
No victims or destructions were reported.
