Small earthquake jolts Vrancea

An earthquake with the magnitude of 2.9 degrees on the Richter scale occurred Wednesday morning, at 5.25 AM, in the Vrancea region, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center reports. The epicenter was registered at a depth of 123 km under the earth crust. Romania’s National Earth Physics Institute puts the magnitude of the Vrancea quake at 1.9 degrees Richter. On Monday, another earthquake of 4.4 degrees Richter jolted parts of Bulgaria, while being also felt in Dobrogea and Constanta, in Romania, at a magnitude of 3.4 degrees. It had the epicenter in Lostrita, Bulgaria, on the Shabla fault line – the same that caused a deep earthquake in August this year.
