The Russian scientists also argue that there may be powerful earthquake in Asia, their strength can exceed 4 times today’s earthquake in Japan (the text written by the 9th of March, while the earthquake was 7.2). Russian experts, which, together with the British meteorologists say the best in the world, at the end of February this year launched a satellite into space, helping them to track conditions favorable for the formation of natural disasters across the globe.
