Quake 5.0 on has struck the city of La Rochelle

An earthquake registering 5.0 on the Richter scale has struck the southwest of France near the city of La Rochelle. The quake hit at 08:45 local time at a depth of 15 kilometers.The epicenter of the quake was eight kilometers southeast of La Rochelle, which is a port on the Bay of Biscay with a population of just over 75,000. There are no reports of any damage so far.France was at risk of serious damage from earthquakes in the future, due to antiquated designs of many buildings, which would not be able to withstand a powerful quake.

Monday, a small earthquake struck Austria near the capital Vienna. The quake measured 4.4 on the Richter scale.

Earthquakes in the area are rare, but geologists have warned that Vienna risks being struck by a large quake in the future. An active fault line runs deep under the Vienna Basin, which covers the city’s area, as well as parts of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

“There are half a dozen known fault lines under the Vienna Basin, which are moving at a very slow rate, but we believe that every 20,000 years or so they are capable of causing an earthquake on the scale of 6.0 or 7.0 on the Richter scale,”geologist Dr Kurt Decker from the University of Vienna told the Local.

The last time France was hit by a deadly earthquake was in 1909, when the town of Lambesc near Marseille was struck by a magnitude-6 tremor, which killed 46 people and injured a further 250.
