Tyva May be Shaken for Years

Scientists are not ready to predict, when the earthquake is going to stop completely. As Alexander Emanov, the Head of Altai-Sayansk Branch of Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences announced, seismic activity in Siberia may go on for many years.
      The first earthquake of magnitude 9.5 occurred in Tyva on December, 27th. The epicenter of earth shocks was 92 km away from Kyzyl, the capital city of Tuva Republic, and the seisms were felt almost in all the Siberian regions. Fortunately, the earthquake has caused neither victims, nor serious damages.
      The earthquake was felt in Tyva, Khakassia, Krasnoyarsk Region, Irkutsk, Kemerovo, and Tomsk Regions. Since then more than 60 repeated shocks have been registered in Tyva.
      The state of emergency has been imposed in Siberia.
