KUALA LUMPUR, 15 Dis (Bernama) -- Terdapat kebarangkalian Malaysia dilanda

gempa bumi pada masa hadapan sungguhpun negara ini terletak di luar kawasan

Lingkaran Api Pasifik, kata seorang penyelidik hari ini.

Pengarah Pusat Penyelidikan dan Inovasi Universiti Malaysia Sabah Prof Dr

Felix Tongkul berkata berdasarkan kajian, pihaknya mendapati Malaysia

berkemungkinan dilanda gempa bumi pada kekuatan sederhana iaitu 6.0 pada skala

Richter pada masa hadapan.

"Daripada kajian yang kita lakukan, Malaysia mungkin tidak akan ditimpa

gempa bumi berskala kuat, tetapi setakat rekod yang kita ada negara mungkin

ditimpa gempa bumi berskala sederhana.

"Gegaran pada tahap itu sudah cukup untuk merosakkan bangunan dan harta

benda," katanya kepada Bernama pada akhir Seminar Teknikal Kebangsaan Gempa Bumi

dan Tsunami anjuran Jabatan Meteorologi Malaysia (JMM) di sini.

Dr Felix berkata bagaimanapun gempa bumi berkekuatan sederhana itu diramal

berlaku di beberapa kawasan tertentu sahaja dan bukan di seluruh negara.

MALAYSIA-GEMPA 2 KUALA LUMPUR

"Seperti yang kita sedia maklum ada beberapa kawasan di negara ini yang

sering mengalami gegaran apabila berlaku gempa bumi kuat di negara jiran seperti

di kawasan Kundasang, Ranau dan Lahad Datu di Sabah. Kawasan-kawasan ini mungkin

berpotensi dilanda gempa bumi sederhana itu," katanya.

Dr Felix yang juga profesor dalam bidang Geologi di Akademi Sains Malaysia

berkata kajian yang dijalankan oleh ahli geologi juga mendapati kawasan Bukit

Tinggi di Pahang turut berpotensi mengalami gempa bumi sederhana.

Sehubungan itu, katanya masyarakat harus sentiasa bersedia dan tidak panik

sekiranya berlaku gegaran pada masa akan datang.

Katanya gempa bumi paling kuat yang direkodkan di Malaysia setakat ini ialah

gempa bumi sederhana pada kekuatan 5.8 skala Richter di Lahad Datu Sabah pada

1976 yang mengakibatkan banyak harta benda rosak serta bangunan retak.

Sementara itu, Timbalan Ketua Pengarah (Ramalan) JMM Alui Bahari berkata

Malaysia mengalami lapan gegaran akibat 22 gempa bumi kuat di negara jiran

sepanjang tahun 2012.

Beliau berkata kedudukan Malaysia yang berjiran dengan negara di zon

lingkaran gempa bumi menyebabkan Malaysia turut tidak terkecuali daripada

terpalit sama merasai gegaran gempa bumi.

"Justeru JMM telah membuat beberapa kajian mengenai kesan gempa bumi dan

hasil kajian sedang diteliti di samping pemantauan dari semasa ke semasa bagi

membolehkan kita bertindak dengan pantas sekiranya ada kawasan yang dilanda

gempa bumi," katanya.
