Earthquake with magnitude of 4.4 rattles eastern Romania. No reports of damage

A moderate earthquake with a magnitude of 4.4 rattled eastern Romania on Sunday. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

It was the 11th quake since the beginning of the year and the strongest so far.

It was felt in the northeastern town of Iasi, the eastern town of Galati and in some parts of the capital, residents reported.

The temblor occurred at 15:43 (13:43 GMT) in the county of Vrancea, which is known for its seismic activity.

It rumbled at a depth of 137 kilometers, the National Earth Physics Institute said.

It had a grade three weak intensity meaning it could be felt in high-rise buildings or in stationary cars, but didn’t cause damage.

It was preceded by a quake measuring 3.5 just before midnight and another one of 3.3  earlier Saturday evening.
