Slovakia Shudders from 3.7 Earthquake on Monday

A mild earthquake measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale hit Slovakia on Monday morning, with no damages or injuries recorded.

The epicentre was about 20 km from the Slovak-Hungarian border near the Hungarian town of Oroszlany and it comes less than six months after a 4.7 earthquake was registered in the same region in January, causing damages in excess of EUR 3.5 million.

This time the earthquake caused taller buildings to shudder, and because of the mildness was probably only felt by people living higher up. Nobody expects a major earthquake in the region, but if their frequency and strength increases then everything is possible.
