Earthquakes Greatest Disaster Concern for Bulgarian Govt

Earthquakes and floods pose the greatest natural disaster threats for Bulgaria, according to an emergency situations plan of the Bulgarian government.

The plan underscores the fact that earthquakes are the most dangerous potential causes of emergency situations in Bulgaria.

The document says that 80% of the population of the country lives in areas with high seismic risk, and that 98% of the Bulgarian territory would be affected in the event of an earthquake with a magnitude of above 7 on the Medvedev-Sponheuer-Karnik scale.

Such a strong earthquake would destroy 26% of all buildings in the country, Bulgarian government experts have estimated.

Floods are mentioned as the second most important natural disaster threat. The regions along the major Bulgarian rivers – Danube, Maritsa, Tundzha, Mesta, Iskar, Arda, and Kamchia – have the highest flood risk.

The government plan estimates that the worst floods are possible in the region along the Danube in the period February-May as a result of the snow melting in the Alps. Such a disaster would affect 500 000 Bulgarians and 73 000 decares of agricultural lands.

5.8-Magnitude Quake in Sofia Was Nearly Undetectable at Kozloduy NPP

The 5.8-magnitude earthquake that shook Sofia in the small hours of Tuesday was nearly undetectable at the Kozloduy NPP in north-western Bulgaria, according to Valentin Nikolov, CEO of the plant.

In a Tuesday interview for the morning broadcast of bTV, Nikolov specified that unit 5 of the Kozloduy NPP was undergoing planned repairs, while the tremors at unit 6 had been very slight.

He explained that the plant's alarm systems had not been activated due to the low amplitude of the seismic waves.

Citing data of the Electricity System Operator (ESO), the CEO of Kozloduy NPP noted that no energy capacities in the country had been stopped due to the earthquake.

He said that the situation at the Kozloduy NPP did not require additional inspections for damages.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale shook Bulgaria's capital early on Tuesday.

The jolt struck at 3:00am local time, about 24km west of the city and at a depth of 9.2km, according to reports of the US Geological Survey.

No casualties were reported after the quake.

Post-Earthquake Infrastructure Inspections under way in South western Bulgaria

Government officials, fire safety experts and engineers are conducting inspections in south western Bulgaria for damages caused by the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that struck in the small hours of Tuesday.

Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova and Lazar Lazarov, Chair of the Managing Board of the Road Infrastructure Agency (RIA), accompanied by a group of construction engineers and experts from the RIA laboratory, started Tuesday morning an inspection of the bridges at the Lyulin and Struma motorways and the entire road network in the region of Pernik, near the epicentre of the earthquake.

The situation in the Pernik region is going back to normal, according to reports of the press office of the Interior Ministry.

Teams of police officers and fire safety experts are assessing the damage caused by the jolt.

No damage has been detected to the walls of drinking water reservoirs and irrigation dams.

Experts from the Sofia Fire Department have checked all of the 48 tip-offs they received after the earthquake, helping elderly people and people with limited mobility.

Most of the tip-offs concerned demolished chimneys and cracked walls.

Inspections are still under way.

The jolt has not caused any deaths or injuries.

There have been no reports about damage to communal infrastructure.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale shook Bulgaria's capital early on Tuesday.

The jolt struck at 3:00am local time, about 24km west of the city and at a depth of 9.2km, according to reports of the US Geological Survey.

The first quake was followed by a series of aftershocks, the strongest of which measured 4.2 - 4.3 on the Richter scale.
