4.8-Magnitude Earthquake Shakes South-western Bulgaria
The epicenter of the moderately strong earthquake was about 230 km southwest of Bulgaria's capital Sofia, out of the country's territory, according to the Seismology Center of the Geophysical Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences..
There are no immediate reports of damages or injured citizens.
The increased seismic activity in the recent months has led a number of experts to argue that Bulgaria might be threatened by a strong earthquake in the near future.
The strongest earthquake ever in continental Europe measuring 7,9 on the Richter Magnitude Scale occurred in 1904 in southwest Bulgaria.
Northeast, north-central, and parts of southern Bulgaria as well as the capital Sofia are located in high-risk seismic zones, according to Bulgarian experts.
