Geologists say that Crimea is experiencing peak collapses, which was projected for 2010-2012. For twenty years, the number of landslides in Yalta, Alushta and all over the west coast of the Crimea has tripled state the specialists of the Institute of Telecommunications and Global Information Space of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
According to the inventory of landslides Crimea, now on the peninsula in 1589, there are varying degrees of landslide activity. About 68% of all Crimean landslides located on the southern coast of Crimea (from Cape Aya in Sevastopol to Cape Elijah in Feodosia). Waves destroyed 550 of the 800 km of coastline the Black Sea coast and more than 100 kilometers – Azov.
Head of Emergency SSGA Miroslav Sagaidak sure landslides in Crimea becoming a real threat not only to roads, buildings and people, but also for the vineyards.
Experts believe that the old vineyards of Crimea, located on dangerous slopes steeper than 25 °, to the brink of destruction due to landslides soil. For emergency prevention program adopted by the engineering site protection from flooding and landslides. To implement it fully to funding from the state budget.
The Republican Committee of ARC Construction and Architecture reported that a set of measures for the protection of the engineering facilities and areas of autonomy from landslides and abrasion by repair and shore protection, and device structures to landslide over 60.7 million USD. These measures are included in the program of the construction industry and housing in the ARC for the period up to 2016.
"Last year, commissioned by the National Committee of the ARC building and architecture developed a scheme for the construction of engineering protection of territories of the Crimea from sliding and abrasive processes are made up of the implementation of instrumental observations of the dynamics of the coastal zone, as well as to monitor compliance of anti-regime", – noted in the department.
However, at many sites of the Crimea, requiring artificial protection from landslides and abrasion processes, the situation continues to deteriorate and is close to the extreme.
Thus, in the Kerch need protection 9 km coasts. The total area of landslide areas Feodosia is 45 hectares. In the Leninsky district of landslide area three times and is 117 hectares. In the area of strengthening Sudak require 9.9 km of shoreline. The total area of landslides in the area – 456 hectares. In Simferopol, landslides destroyed neighborhood Marino. In Big Alushta landslide area reached 614 ha and 1681 ha of Greater Yalta.
