YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, 11 Oct — RIA Novosti. Aftershocks after an earthquake on Kuriles, perhaps, will proceed within two weeks, the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences reported on Thursday to RIA Novosti, the deputy director of the Sakhalin innovative enterprise "Geofiztekh" Alexey Konovalov.© of AFP 2018/Frederick Florin At Kuriles recorded aftershock measuring 5,2B Thursday at 10:16 local time (02:16 Moscow time) the Pacific coast of the Kuril Islands had earthquake measuring 6,7. Its epicenter was in 150 kilometers to the east of Onekotan Island. Residents of Severo-Kurilsk could feel tremors measuring up to four points. "Theoretically, if to judge by consequences of a recent Japanese earthquake in the south of Hokkaido, it is possible to assume continuation of repeated pushes on Kuriles within two weeks. Both earthquakes are similar both in magnitude, and in depth, and in some other parameters. In seismology there is an indicator which defines a difference between magnitude of earthquake and the strongest aftershock. It has to be within 1 – 1,2. In a seismoevent to Hokkaido this size is maintained. On Kuriles it keeps within 1,2 too" — the interlocutor of the agency explained. The regularity of emergence of aftershocks falls down over time, and soon we absolutely will forget about them, the seismologist summarized.
