Scientists have predicted the destruction of Bangladesh, as a result determined in the study area


Scientists at Columbia University posted on the University’s website an article that said that in the next 10 years may occur mahasammata, the victims of which will be more than 140 million people in Bangladesh. This is slightly less than the entire population of this country, so we can talk about the total destruction of the Republic’s capital of Dhaka and other major cities. The earthquake may also affect the East of India.

Scientists explain that the region for 400 years there is a huge underground tension between the Indo-Australian and Burma tectonic plates. Now the plate in the area of Bangladesh is moving at a speed greater than 5 cm per year.

All of this can lead to a massive earthquake more than 9 points, which will cover an area of 40 thousand square km.

Scientists remind us that the movement of these tectonic plates in 2004 caused a tsunami, which in India, Indonesia, Thailand and Sri Lanka in a few hours killed more than 230 thousand people.
