Quake Rattles Southern Sweden

Published tisdag 16 december 2008 kl 09.34

Residents in southern Sweden were woken early on Tuesday by an earthquake, a large one, by Swedish standards.

It rattled shelves and shook Swedes in their beds, measuring 4.7 on the Richter scale.

According to the US geological institute USGS this level of earthquake is not dangerous, but there will be aftershocks.

The seismic disturbance was centred 60 km East of the southern city of Malmö, Sweden’s third biggest city, but reached also north to Jönköping in central Sweden.

”This is probably the biggest earthquake in Sweden since 1904,” Uppsala University seismologist Reynir Bodvarsson told Swedish Radio.
