Strong 6.6 magnitude earthquake strikes Russia’s Kamchatka region

Kamchatka Nov 12November 12, 2013KAMCHATKA –  A 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula on Tuesday. No one was injured in the quake, which struck at about 7 p.m. local time (11 a.m. Moscow time), the region’s Emergencies Ministry said, but emergency workers are surveying buildings in the area to check for damage. The earthquake shook the ground on the peninsula up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) from the epicenter, according to the local geophysical center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, but did not cause a tsunami. Earthquake severity in most former Soviet states is measured on the Richter magnitude scale, which quantifies the amount of seismic energy released by the tremors. Earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.0 to 6.9 are considered strong, potentially causing damage in populated areas within a 160-kilometer (100-mile) radius. –RIA

    Amazing isn’t it? How here in Southern California, ONLY if a populated area is “directly” at the epicenter of a 6.7 or greater magnitude, is there any damage. Personally, I believe this is one of the safest places in the World when it comes to “natural disasters” and the lack thereof! Thank God!
