I am not sure how credible this is, so I am not posting it as a news story. How likely is for massive tsunamis hitting South America? Are there any
active volcanos there?
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.
