A huge earthquake is lurking and building under Bangladesh, which can turn the eastern India, Bangladesh and Myanmar into ruins. The said area is home to millions of people. Moreover, the route from India-Myanmar-Thailand, also known as Trilateral Highway, will get demolished which means, trade through South East Asia will be cut off. The known zones are completely under land which multiplies the threat level.
These findings appeared in Journal of Nature Geoscience.
#1 Scientist got evidence that two tectonic plates are getting strained under for at-least 400 years . World’s largest delta which can be dangerous for 140 million people living in the area. What’s more? the area is already close to the sea level.
# 2 According to Nature Geoscience, newly identified threat zone is the subduction zone, where earth zone is thrusting under one another. The zone is entirely under the land which is completely dangerous as the other zones were under the ocean.
# 3 Earth got its biggest shook when tsunami killed almost 2,30000 people. Japan was badly hit during that time. India too crumbled under the force of the tsunami. The most recent earthquake occurred in the Nepal in 2015 that killed 9000 people. It happened due to collision caused in the Himalayas.

What to do if Earthquake occurs?
This is a time when you will feel helpless and you will be, because you cannot face nature’s fury. Its upto the hands of authorities because they have all the facilities and other protective measures which they can apply to save the lives.
What government needs to do?
Government must play an important role during the natural calamity, because mere public cannot do anything in such situation. All the equipment, health facilities, police protection almost everything is under the government say. So its important for the officials to take care of their people.
#1 Government should be ready with the back up facilities, such as water, electricity, first aid, shelter, refugee camps, etcetera.
#2 It’s the responsibility of the officials to look out for suffered ones as they need proper attention and care. A team of doctors should be allocated to different places.
#3 If the government comes to know in advance about the earthquake, its their duty to evacuate those places as soon as possible.
#4 The help team should be on move, be it the army, paramedical staff, firefighters or anyone they should be in to the action because, there is nothing important that the people of our nation.
Now that you know , gear up and let us hope for the best and be prepared for the worst.
