Jan 25, 2007

Indian scientist warns of a possible major natural disaster in South East Asia - Increased seismic activities have been recorded in the past one month in the Java-Sumatra-Andaman region of South East Asia, indicating the possibility of a major disaster in the near future. More than 52 earthquakes with varying magnitude have been recorded in the last month. These include two major earthquakes: 7.1 magnitude in Taiwan on December 26 and 7.5 in the Molucca sea. Also 4.9 and 6.1 magnitude earthquakes were recorded in the Nicobar Islands. This appears to be a natural cyclic process but there is a possibility of it triggering a major disaster.
