An earthquake can start at any moment: Transcarpathia will be affected the most

Earthquakes can reach a magnitude of 7. 
Seismologists have warned that a powerful earthquake may occur in Ukraine in the near future and it will probably affect Transcarpathia the most, - the narodna-pravda writes
Seismologist Oleksandr Kendzera from the Institute of Geophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine said that seismic activity, which affects Transcarpathia, usually occurs once every 100-120 years. The last powerful tremors were recorded in 1908. 
"Transcarpathia is a seismically active region in which the magnitude of the catastrophe can reach 8. Seismologists emphasize that a new earthquake can be just as powerful, and shocks can begin at any time," - said Kendzera. 
What to do during an earthquake, 
keep calm, don't panic; 
act immediately as soon as you feel vibrations of the ground or building; falling objects and debris are the greatest danger; 
leave the house quickly and move away from it to an open place if you are on the first or second floor; 
leave the corner rooms immediately if you are above the second floor; 
stand in the opening of the inner door or in the corner of the room, as far away from windows and heavy objects as possible; 
do not rush to the stairs or to the elevator if you are in a high-rise building above the fifth floor; 
run out of the house quickly but carefully. Beware of debris and electrical wires; 
move away from tall buildings, overpasses, bridges and power lines; 
stop if you are driving, open the door and stay in the car until the tremors stop; 
check for casualties, notify rescuers and provide assistance.
