PostSubject: Scientists Assuage Bulgarians' Quake Fears   Fri Aug 27, 2010 7:45 pm

Scientists Assuage Bulgarians' Quake Fears

There will not be a devastating earthquake in Bulgaria in the next 2-3 years because the research has shown an activation of only weak ones, scientists claim.

The strongest earthquake that could happen in the Bulgarian capital would have a magnitude of 6.5 on Richter scale and would take at least 9000 victims.

According to scientists, because of the strong earthquakes that Bulgaria experienced about 100 years ago, much of the accumulated tension has been released and this is the reason why recently there have only been weaker quakes.

Sofia is the most dangerous zone because of the big population and the old buildings.

Scientists believe that the constructions in the center part of the capital are the most endangered because they have been renovated many times and the result of one earthquake on them would be catastrophic.

PostSubject: Minister Assures of Robustness of Bulgarian Buildings   Sun Sep 12, 2010 9:19 pm

[size=55:1lepx82i]novinite 12 September 2010

Minister Assures of Robustness of Bulgarian Buildings against Earthquakes

Buildings in Bulgaria are fit to withstand an earthquake with a magnitude of up to 7.5 on the Richter scale, according to Regional Development Minister Rosen Plevneliev.

Plevneliev, who is a construction entrepreneur himself and former manager of Lindner Bulgaria, has stated that even though the new construction in the country in the past years was done "
in euphoric haste"
, the structures of the buildings guaranteed that they will stand even in a 9-magnitude quake on the Medvedev scale, or 7.5-magnitude hit on the Richter scale.

His comment came a day after Sofia was hit by a 3.5-magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale that caused no major damage.

The Minister told Darik Radio he was concerned for buildings where the owners changed the facades for their own needs.

He did confirm, however, even the robustness of the concrete panel buildings that were built all across Bulgaria during the communist period.

PostSubject: Sofia Deputy Mayor Suggests Earthquake Tax   Mon Sep 13, 2010 2:44 pm

[size=55:3a7czifx]Sofia echo 13 September 2010

Sofia Deputy Mayor Suggests Earthquake Tax

The Deputy Mayor for Security from the Sofia municipality, Ivan Sotirov, has proposed the creation of a special fund for cases of earthquakes, with contributions from all properties.

Sotirov has proposed the implementation of a tax that, in his words, might be minimal, but should be divided among all properties in the Bulgarian capital.

The deputy mayor also pointed out that the Sofia municipality should begin investigating and investing in safe-proving of important buildings, like the public buildings and the critical infrastructure.

"
It is clear that we do not have the resources to do that,"
he said, explaining that the Sofia municipality does not have enough money for an anti-earthquake investigation of all the properties.

Sotirov added that a full investigation, confirmation and constructive improvements of all the buildings in the Bulgarian capital would require billions of Euro.

The proposition by the Sofia Deputy Mayor came as a result of the recent earthquakes that shook the Bulgarian capital and caused a panic among the Sofia citizens.


I just can't believe this one :shocked1:I think they will be taxing us all to have a pee soon

Two Light Earthquakes Detected around Bulgaria's Sofia

Two very light earthquakes were detected with epicenters some 30 km south-east of Bulgaria's capital Sofia Tuesday morning.

They were of magnitude 2.4 and 2.6, with the first not even felt and reported by people, but rather only detected by the Geophysical Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (which contains Bulgaria's seismology service).

The earthquakes occured around 7.50 EET. Of course, no damages have been reported.

Three minor earthquakes of magnitudes 2.5-3.5 were felt in Sofia August and September.
