The earthquake occurred about five miles northwest of Nordmaling and about as far north of ?rnsk?ldsvik. According to Bj?rn Lund, earthquakes are common in this area.
- In the ?rnsk?ldsvik tract and south it is a stretch with quite a lot of earthquakes.
Today's earthquake was relatively deep down and Bj?rn Lund believes that the effects will then not be as great.
- It may have been a little scratched in the glasses, but often it mumbles or if you are close by you can hear a sharp bang.
Earthquakes of this magnitude or greater occur three to four times a year. The last quake of about the same size in April 2007 was about two miles a day.
