N-power project junked due to Fukushima disaster: Gujarat CM 9.3.2018 General News
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani today told the Assembly the proposal to set up a nuclear power plant in Bhavnagar district has been scrapped owing to a movement by panic-stricken locals following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan. The project was proposed to be set up at Mithivirdi village in Bhavnagar district, said Energy Minister Saurabh Patel. He was speaking during a debate on the issue during Question Hour of the Assembly which is having its budget session. Taking part in the debate, Rupani said though the state government had signed an MoU with Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL) in 2007, the project was eventually scrapped by the PSU after villagers raised apprehensions about their safety in the wake of radioactive "leak" from the Fukushima nuclear plant following a tsunami. Rupani was replying to a question by Imran Khedawala (Congress) about the status of the proposed 6,000 MW nuclear power plant, for which the state had signed agreements

Major 7.5-magnitude earthquake strikes Papua New Guinea 26.2.2018 General News
A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck Papua New Guinea today, US seismologists said, but no tsunami warning was issued. The quake's epicentre was around 90 kilometres (55 miles) south of Porgera in Enga province, according to USGS, and hit at a depth of 35 kilometres. USGS said some casualties and damage were possible and recent earthquakes in the area had caused tsunamis and landslides. It said homes in the region were "a mix of vulnerable and earthquake resistant construction". The impact should be relatively localised, it added. Earthquakes are common in PNG, which sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates.

Why China's multi-billion CPEC project is under threat in Pakistan 11.2.2018 DNA: Popular News
The multi-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in Gwadar port off the coast in Pakistan could be under threat if a catastrophe strikes the region, according to experts. Gwadar, which is located close to the Makran Trench, last saw a huge earthquake of 8.1 magnitudes in 1945, which triggered a tsunami that battered Iran, Pakistan, Oman and India and killed around 4,000 people. The trench is the meeting point for two tectonic plates. To prevent such a catastrophe, a team of 40 researchers from China and Pakistan boarded the Experimental 3 vessel for the trench last month and did a 'CT scan' (geological survey) in the region. However, not much is known about the zone, the South China Morning Post reported. The Gwadar port has been leased to China for 40 years and any potential disaster in the area could undermine Beijing’s ambitions to revive the ancient trade route from China through Asia to Africa and Europe. The CPEC project is also a part of China's 'Belt and Road Initiative', a vast ...

China, Pak survey Makran Trench over quake threat to Gwadar 10.2.2018 deccanherald.com
Nearly 40 geologists from China and Pakistan have teamed up to survey the Makran Trench in Balochistan following Beijings concerns over the possibility of a massive earthquake affecting the strategic Gwadar port in the volatile province, a media report said today. The trench is the meeting point for two tectonic plates and is close to the Pakistani deep-sea port of Gwadar which China has acquired on a 40-year lease. Gwadar forms part of the important link for the over USD 50 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) connecting to Chinas Xinjiang province through the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). "It has been more than 70 years since the last big earthquake shook the Makran Trench off the south coast of Pakistan but if and when the next catastrophic one happens, it could disturb more than the landscape," the Hong-Kong based South China Morning Post reported. Any potential disaster in the area could undermine Beijings ambitions to revive trade from China through Asia to Africa and Europe through ...
