Expert: Chances of another major earthquake are low

A powerful magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Hualien this morning, the largest earthquake since 921.EarthquakeAnd this is also the second earthquake to reach level 6 after the weather administration reorganized the seismic intensity system. Experts say the cycle of earthquakes of magnitude 7 or greater is usually about 100 years, but now it has been more than a century. Although he has not ruled out the possibility of large earthquakes occurring in the future, he believes that the probability of large earthquakes occurring in the future is low, and close observation is still required for follow-up.

The Meteorological Administration said a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck this morning, and the possibility of a subsequent adjustment could not be ruled out. Professor Guo Chenhao of the Department of Geological Sciences at National Taiwan University said,JapanBefore the 311 earthquake, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake had occurred off the coast on March 9 of the same year. At the time, experts believed this was the main shock. Unexpectedly, this was followed by a magnitude 9 earthquake in the Japan Trench. Therefore, 309 was considered an earthquake. Forewarned, but it was believed that generally, the probability of a major earthquake following a major earthquake is extremely low.

Guo Chenhao pointed out that based on current seismology, 95% of the current earthquakes will be considered mainshocks. This morning’s earthquake occurred off the coast of Hualien, and a powerful magnitude 8 earthquake occurred in 1920 in the Ryukyu Trench near Hualien. Hualien has also experienced several large earthquakes in recent years, but for “trench type” earthquakes in the past, such as Hualien, the century-old earthquake. In the past, some experts reported that the period of earthquakes above magnitude 7 was about 100. years, but now it is more than 100 years. They believe that the likelihood of a major earthquake occurring in the future is low, but cannot be ruled out from a seismological perspective. There is a need to keep a close eye on this possibility in the future also.
