Specialists think the strongest shocks will occur in the west of Odessa region [about 7 points] and in Crimea [up to 9 points]. Alexander Kendzera, the deputy head of the Institute, says it will provoke a very strong storm, able to ruin houses located at the shore of Crimea. In Crimean mountains landslides are possible.

Scientists base their predictions on the recurrence cycle of serious earthquakes in Vrancea area in South Carpathians at the border with Ukraine. Earthquakes with magnitude of 7-7.2 points occur there once in 20-27 years.

Yet they added currently there are no obvious processes, pointing to a serous earthquake.
