PostSubject: 1 000 Schoolchildren Evacuated in Bulgaria   Mon Nov 30, 2009 12:38 pm

1 000 Schoolchildren Evacuated in Bulgaria's Kavarna over Earthquake
Society | November 30, 2009, Monday


A light earthquake which occurred in Northeastern Bulgaria Monday morning has led to the evacuation of 1 000 schoolchildren in the Black Sea town of Kavarna.

A 3,7-magnitude earthquake that hit Northeastern Bulgaria at 7:48 am Monday was felt most tangibly in the Black Sea towns of Kavarna and Shabla.

Its epicenter was about 430 km to the northeast of Sofia, about 10 km off Bulgaria's Black Sea coast near the Kamen Brayg village, the Seismology Center of the Geophysical Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences announced.

The schoolchildren in Kavarna were evacuated for about an hour from their school buildings and then returned safely and resumed their lessons. No damages or casualties have been reported.

The earthquake was also felt in some of the nearby villages in the Dobrich District.

On August 5, 2009, Shabla and Kamen Brayg were hit by a 5-magnitude quake which caused cracks in some buildings, and led to a visit of PM Borisov on the spot, and the allocation of government aid.

Thank you for that information varnagirl and as pixi says its great news that none of the children were hurt buy this, but it must have scared them terribly , I do believe that the earth quakes in Bulgaria seem to be getting more frequent but I would think this is something to do with global warming?

PostSubject: Light Earthquake Registered in Bulgaria Pirin Mountain   Sun Dec 27, 2009 1:50 pm

[size=75:1i61j479]novinite 27 December 2009

Light Earthquake Registered in Bulgaria Pirin Mountain

A light, 2,4 magnitude on the Richter scale earthquake was registered in Bulgaria by the European Seismology Institute Sunday.

The epicenter is in the central part of the Pirin Mountain, 109 km southwest of the city of Plovdiv and 15 km northwest of the town of Gotse Delchev. The tremors were registered at 4:36 am. There are no reports of injuries and damage.

The Bulgarian Seismology Institute at the Academy of Sciences confirmed the earthquake, but pointed out that shocks of similar magnitude happen daily and the chances of them being felt by the population are slim, for this reason there is no need to announce such earthquakes and stir panic.

I too wonder what’s next I have just looked at the weather they have had today and in parts its been 18c so what’s that all about? is it something to do with global warming? Or is that a myth? Who knows and I think we will only find out when it’s too late for all of us

It is very strange I know but many countries have earthquakes that never get reported but I agree with what’s been said here Bulgaria have certainly had a share of them but then if you look at the weather over there at the moment that’s even more strange and I think it’s all connected
