The Emergencies Ministry's Far Eastern regional centre sends a group of rescuers to the Kurile Islands where quakes have been recorded almost without interruption since November 15.

Ten people are sent from the Sakhalin centre and five from Kamchatka to the islands Kunashir, Iturup and Paramushir, where the cities of Yuzhno-Kurilsk, Kurilsk and Severo-Kurilsk are situated. Five specialists will be on duty in each of them.

On November 15, a quake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale took place 130 kilometres east of Simushir Island.

About a thousand tremors were recorded near Sumishir later, the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk seismological station said.

According to the latest reports, a quake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale was recorded at 13:24 local time (06:24 Moscow time) this Friday.
