Chamonix: earthquake on Monday morning at 7:41 am


An earthquake yesterday morning. At precisely 7:41am, the ground moved in Vallorcine but also in Chamonix. The earthquake was recorded by measuring instruments and was felt by some people.

The magnitude was 2.9. Once again, the epicenter was on the Vallorcine side, Pic de la Loriaz, according to seismologists.

It seems mostly that it was a replica of the latest earthquake of 4.6 that struck Vallorcine in 2005. The earthquake yesterday made no accidents, firefighters received no specific call.
