Just 41 Aftershocks Felt in Bulgaria Last Week
Even though the earthquake that shook Bulgaria last Tuesday has been followed by over 500 aftershocks, only 41 of them have been actually felt by people, an expert has explained.
Prof. Nikolay Miloshev, head of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences' National Institute in Geophysics, Geodesy and Geography, has reminded that four aftershocks have had magnitudes stronger than 4 on the Richter scale.
Bulgaria's latest tangible aftershock occurred at 8.:37 am local time Wednesday and had a magnitude of 3.2-3.3 on the Richter scale.
Last week, researchers from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences explained that aftershocks may reach a magnitude of 4 on the Richter scale, which would not damage the infrastructure.
The initial earthquake struck early on Tuesday and had a magnitude of 5.8 – 6 on the Richter scale. Its epicenter was 6 km from the city of Pernik and some 25 km from the capital Sofia.
