Is this earthquake of high magnitude and will cause serious damage? Xu Xiwei, president and researcher of the National Institute of Natural Disaster Prevention and Control of the Ministry of Emergency Management, said in an interview with China Science News.Due to its sparse population and weak industrial base, the expected casualties and economic losses are relatively light.

"Due to the limited magnitude of this earthquake,Judging from our prediction results, the probability of the risk of co-seismic avalanche slippage caused by it is low,In other words, secondary disasters such as landslides, landslides, and mudslides will not be too serious. ”

Xu Xiwei said: "The earthquake zone with a radius of 100 km from the epicenter is mainly a low risk zone or a very low risk zone for seismic landslides, a small number of areas are medium hazard zones, and very few high risk zones and very high risk zones. ”
