YEKATERINBURG, October 19. /TASS/. The epicenter of today’s magnitude 4.2 earthquake that struck the Urals was located in 165 kilometers from Yekaterinburg near the settlement of Shali, director of the Arti observatory that registered the quake Oleg Kusonsky told TASS on Monday.
"For the first time in the last five years we registered underground tremors of magnitude from 3.2 to 4.2. They were registered at 2:44am local time. The epicenter was in the settlement of Shali located in around 165 kilometers from Yekaterinburg. We continued registering aftershocks for two minutes but that does not mean it lasted that long. This information is being verified now," Kusonsky said.
As a result of underground tremors, people felt vibrations in their houses. "Walls and windows were shaking," the expert noted.
He added that a 4.2 magnitude is average and "sometimes happens in the Urals Mountains." Similar underground tremors were last time registered in the region in March 2010.
No one was injured in the earthquake, according to regional Emergencies Ministry.
