“Clearly tangible” – sounds audible: not a day without an earthquake in Tyrol

The series of earthquakes in Tyrol continues. The earth also shook on Saturday night, this time in the Ehrwald area. According to reports, the earthquake sounds were often audible. Minor damage is also possible.

There is currently not a day without a report of an earthquake in Tyrol. After reports of earthquakes were recorded almost daily in the Kitzbühel district, this time it was the turn of the Ausserfern. A magnitude of 3.6 was measured there at 00:06 on Saturday.

As seismologist Nikolaus Horn from GeoSphere Austria explains, the earthquake was clearly felt by the population in the Ehrwald area of ​​Tyrol. And further: “At this size, there may be minor damage in isolated cases, such as hairline cracks in the plaster; More serious damage is not expected at this level.”

Series on the border with Salzburg
Recently, more than 60 measurable earthquakes were measured on the border with Salzburg. In many cases the population was able to observe this themselves. The earthquake service recently stated that the series in the Pillerseetal could continue for “several days”.

The earthquake agency asked people to use the awareness form, the QuakeWatch Austria app or send written reports to the address Hohe Warte 38, 1190 Vienna.
