Did the Earth move for you?

Swiss Seismological Service

The Earth shook around 900 times in or close to Switzerland last year.

In September the year’s strongest quake was measured, at a strength of 4.7. The epicentre was in Alsace in France, but it was felt across the country. 

The Swiss Seismological Service had 11,000 reports following that – which is a new record. 

Although there were a large number of tremors registered – no property damage was reported. That last time a quake caused damage was in 1991 in Graubünden – that was rated at strength 5.
