A seismic station has been reopened in the Maritime region’s city of Vladivostok
A seismic station has been reopened in the Maritime region’s city of Vladivostok after about four years ago its equipment got out of order and it had to be closed for indefinite period, the head of the regional meteorological center, Boris Kurbai, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. The new equipment makes it possible to register jolts in any part of the globe and is first of all necessary for the tsunami service on the coast of the Sea of Japan. The money for buying an unmanned station came from the federal budget. The Maritime region is situated in a seismic zone, where tremors can reach seven on the Richter scale. However, tsunami waves pose a greater danger for the region. The Maritime coast was hit by tsunami five times in the 20th century. Last time it was hit in 1993
