Expert says minor earthquakes have become frequent in Armenia

March 23, 2012ARMENIAThe number of earthquakes has recently increased in Armenia and the region. The National Seismic Protection Service (NSPS) of Armenia on Wednesday registered a magnitude-3 tremor, whose epicenter was 13 kilometers southeast of Martuni city. Thirteen earthquakes measuring 3 magnitude or higher have occurred in the region. In an interview with Armenian News-NEWS.am Ashkhen Tovmasyan, representative of the National Seismic Protection Service, said According to her, seismic risks are growing with urban development and with population growth. Risk increases in Armenia when new buildings are built and population grows, if there was no urban development there would be no risks. As Ashkhen Tovmasyan mentioned, currently there are no serious anomaly indicating earthquakes, so there is no need to worry about any earthquake. There are often all the indicators of an earthquake but no quake happens. The expert advised to build buildings in safe places and avoid blocking the main entrances. –News.am

    Also take a look at Turkey. They have had thousands of minor earthquakes and have surface magma showing in a couple of areas.

    I have a feeling the wagon of experts determining something is indeed up with the planet is about to begin boarding.The weather channel this week had their top meteorologist say he is now admitting the climate is in a cycle of dramatic change and he has not yet determined what the cause is.Well its a start.
