Russian Earthquake Could Be Deepest Ever

8 posts in this topic

The massive, magnitude-8.3 temblor that struck today (May 24) near Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula could turn out be the deepest earthquake ever recorded.

At 378 miles (609 kilometers) below the seafloor, the quake could best the previous record set in Bolivia, in 1994. The initial depth may be revised as scientists collect more data. The Bolivian quake was a magnitude-8.2, and 392 miles deep (631 km)

That's pretty crazy. Earthquakes are one thing I've always been sort of scared of because you have absolutely zero control.

Does this mean one is coming to the West Coast? If the east sdie of Russia is "adjusting" perhaps our West Coast will make an adjustment, or somewhere in the middle of the Pacific. Depends on the plates, I guess.
