Since the beginning of this year, we have been hearing about some or the other natural disasters. Most of the countries have faced severe tremors and some have faced mild earthquakes and it looks like more are to come. We do not share fake news or predictions, but our information is based on the facts shared by weather experts. Some strange leaks have been reportedly detected at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and scientists say it could cause a huge earthquake.
Earthquake in the Pacific Ocean today
Now, this news has aroused people’s interest and they want to know if it is really true or just a rumor shared by some people to create a buzz on social media. Well this time the news is true and scientists have discovered a peculiar leak at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean that may cause a major earthquake one day. The leak was reportedly detected off the Pacific coasts of Canada and the United States of America. Experts further state that they have never been seen before. Just keep scrolling to know more details about it.
Multiple media reports claim that scientists fear a hole in the 600-mile-long fault line could unleash a destructive earthquake that would wipe out cities across the northwestern United States. Reports indicate that the hot liquid spewed from the hole is located fifty miles off the Oregon coast, on the edge of the dipping fault known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone, which runs from northern California to Canada. . Now this geological feature has the ability to trigger magnitude 9 tremors on the Pacific Northwest side. The report states that this leak was first observed in 2015. However, a new analysis led by the University of Washington (UW) shares that the chemically distinct liquid is something called “defective lubricant.”
Now everyone must be thinking that what this liquid can do, well this liquid allows you to move very smoothly but without it, “stress can build to make a damaging and catastrophic earthquake”. The scientists labeled the name of the hole they called “Pythias Oasis” and described it as a hot spring. As we mentioned above, this hole was found in 2015 and in the same year, a robotic diver discovered the hole in a survey when sonar images recorded bubbles coming out of the seabed. As of now, we only have this many details, but we promise we’ll be back with more information soon.
