Bulgarian Seismologist Disproves Earthquake Info

The Geophysics Institute at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences disproved earlier information about an earthquake in south western Bulgaria Saturday.

Emil Botev, from the Institute, told the Bulgarian National Radio, BNR, the information of the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre of a 3.9-point magnitude on the Richter scale earthquake was inaccurate.

Botev said it was submitted by Greek seismologists, and it concerned a wave of earthquakes on the other side of the globe, near Alaska.

"
There has not been an earthquake on Bulgarian territory;
the report does not come from a Bulgarian source,"
he said.

It was reported earlier by the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre that a 3.9-point magnitude on the Richter scale earthquake was registered 13 km south of the town of Gotse Delchev at 0:34 am Saturday.

Mild earthquake shakes Bulgaria



A mild jolt measuring 2.9 on the Richter scale was registered near Sofia on the night of November 3 2010, the Geophysics Institute at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences said.

The quake was felt at 9:56 pm, 33km from the Bulgarian capital, and 18km north-west of the village of Ihtiman.

It was felt as a very weak quake and no damage was reported.

Bulgaria has been affected by numerous earthquakes in the past few months, as seismic activity has been on the rise.

An earthquake of just more than 5.4 on the Richter scale hit nearby two towns in Serbia in the early hours of November 2010, leaving two people dead and many injured.

Separately, in Turkey at just before 5am, there was a quake measuring five on the Richter scale. The epicentre of this quake was 360km south-east of the Bulgarian capital city Sofia, and the quake was felt in the country’s southern towns of Kurdjali, Plovdiv and Yambol.

A four magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale struck Kroumovgrad and Kurdzhali at 7.22 am on August 23 2010, causing some structural damage.

The tremor's epicentre was said to be at the border between Greece and Turkey in the Aegean Sea, about 330km south-east of Sofia.
