Potentially catastrophic earthquake in Siberia could rip Eurasian continent in half


A potentially dangerous earthquake could have devastating consequences on Europe and Asia.

Since seismic activity has been measured around the north of Lake Baikal, this has led scientists to believe that an earthquake could happen in the future. If such devastating earthquake happened, the entire Eurasia continent could be split into half.

Seismic activity showed tremors between 3.0 to 5.0 magnitude on the Richter Scale.

The situation is being monitored by experts. It seems that the rising tectonic activity has been noticed in Siberia. This activity occurs in every 50 to 60 years. Scientists noted that there is a possibility that such constant seismic activity could split the Eurasian land into two parts at Baikal in 650 million years.

Previously, the seismic activity in the Baikal region was recorded in the middle of the 20th century. This seismic activity caused several earthquakes in Siberia in the 1950s.

One earthquake even triggered a movement of a mountain range in Mongolia. This occurrence is known as the Tormkhon formation, which resulted in the rise of the mountain range by more than eight meters.

More than 30 lakes in mountain valleys were formed due to an earthquake in China’s Sichuan province.

The largest earthquake that happened this year in Nepal brought death to nearly 9,000 people.
