LONDON could be at risk of a major earthquake after scientists discovered two major fault lines running directly under the capital. Researchers from Imperial College said the fault lines move between 1mm and 2mm a year – running directly under central London and another beneath Canary Wharf.

Dr Richard Ghail, a specialist in civil and environmental engineering at Imperial College, said the chance of a magnitude 5 quake is “enough to be scary”.

The UK experiences hundreds of tremors each year, of which only about 10 are actually felt.

But research shows London and the South East is rising at the rate of 1 to 2mm a year as Britain is squeezed by strong tectonic forces.

In the event of a quake, scientists say the tremors would be similar to that of standing on a platform between two passing trains.

However there is a possibility of structural damage if a magnitude 6 quake strikes.

And today findings by the Imperial College are being used to draw up seismic guidelines for new and renovated builldings in the city, which will be built over the 100 years to withstand a 6.5 magnitude quake.

Dr Ghail said the research had overturned the traditional view of London as geologically stable.

He said: “It now looks a modestly active, very heavily faulted, complicated area.

“It’s probably gone from the simplest to most complex geology in the UK.”

The last time London was hit by a earthquake was back in the 1770s.

But now researchers say there is only a one-in-a-thousand-year chance of a tremor.

Dr Ghail said that although it was “scary” it was “not fundamentally a problem”.

In a new report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Institute of Physics of the Earth warned that America in the next two weeks is in danger of catastrophic proportions Earthquake.

Focusing on the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, and the region along the west coast of the New Madrid zone Fault.

SCIENTISTS have urged government officials to prepare for a terrifying and unprecedented magnitude-9 mega-earthquake that would unleash a deadly tsunami with 30 metre-high waves.
