Swiss seismological service reported that in the Northern part of Zion the night of 4 November began a series of fairly frequent earthquakes. Three days later the aftershocks are still continuing. At the moment, was more than a hundred seismic events, 4 of which exceeded 3 points. These earthquakes were felt not only in Zion, but also in the Bernese Alps, according to the portal PLANETANOVOSTI.COM with reference to the Watchers.News.

Seismologists say that such a swarm for Switzerland is nonsense. In the valley of Valais, where there were minor aftershocks, they meet regularly, but are sporadic and a swarm occurs over several years.

In this case, the norm just a few months happened in a relatively short period of time. It should be noted that the number of earthquakes is increasing not only in Zion, but in General throughout the country. This indicates that to predict the future is extremely problematic, because the dynamics of seismic activity has changed. Experts added that the likelihood of a strong earthquake in the coming days does not exceed the level of 10%.

the Valais is the most seismically active region in Switzerland. The aftershocks of the last days recorded in the most active areas.
