A Russian scientist has warned that a deadly tsunami like the one that
devastated south-east Asia over the weekend could strike in places like
Ecuador, Peru, and Columbia.
Yevgeny Dolginov, a professor of geological studies at the Russian
University for Peoples’ Friendship, estimated the risk to areas around
the world using a theory based on tectonic plate movements, the
Interfax news agency reported.
“I feel it is necessary to warn the embassies of countries located
around the equator about the possibilities of massive earthquakes in
the near future,” Dolginov was quoted as saying.
“According to my theory, there are lineaments that present a danger in
terms of seismic activity.”
Among other possible danger zones, he named Equatorial New Guinea,
Cameroon, Nigeria and Gabon.
