Print Friendly, PDF & Email


A 4.2 magnitude earthquake as measured by the Richter Scale struck Vaud on the 28th May in the morning. The epicenter was 15 kilometers southwest of Montreux but only caused minor damage according to the Swiss Seismological Service.

Switzerland gets hit by around 900 earthquakes annually. 2017 holds the record for the most earthquakes in one year with 1,230 earthquakes detected. The strongest earthquake in recorded history in Switzerland occurred in Basel in 1356.

Another earthquake like the one that hit Basel all those years ago with a magnitude of 6.6 would cost more than 100 billion Swiss francs according to experts from the ETH Zurich.
