2013-04-12 13:58

4,8 magnitude earthquake struck the north of the town of Gudauta in Abkhazia, the News-Georgia reports referring to the Seismic Monitoring Center of the State University of Elijah.


Tremors were recorded at 02.31 am local time; the epicenter was located near the village of Rikza. "We do not have information about the destruction, since due to obvious reasons we have no connection either with the local population or the colleagues. Earthquake was of such power that the people must have felt tremors," said the representative of the Center. She noted that this region of Abkhazia was considered less seismically active zone.

Recall, 6.3 magnitude earthquake stuck in the south-western Iran near the Bushehr nuclear power plant. 12 villages completely destroyed, killing 37 people, more than 850 were injured. The main quake was followed by more than 80 aftershocks.

It is reported that the NPP itself was not damaged, and there is no security threat. Bushehr nuclear power plant is the only nuclear power in the country.
