An earthquake shook northern Sweden at 10:15 on Wednesday morning. The epicentre was located northwest of Kalix in the county of Norrbotten.  The quake reached 3 on the Richter scale and could be felt in all the neighbouring municipalities and even as far out as in the northern archipelago.

The broadcasting house in Luleå on the north eastern coast shuddered noticeably and many people from the area have reported that the windows rattled and that the earth shook.

Earthquakes are unusual in Sweden and according to seismologist Reynir Bödvarsson at the Uppsala University this was a relatively powerful one.
