Earthquake Hits Bulgaria`s Capital

In Bulgaria’s capital Sofia on Friday, an earthquake hit the city with a magnitude of 3.5 on the Richter scale. For those living in Sofia it is the third quake in the last 2 weeks.

There were reports of slight damage to buildings and some communication systems, however it was not considered to be major quake even though some locals had felt some of the previous weeks tremors who lived closer to the epicenter..



Not as destructive as the Earthquake seen in New Zealand last week which had a 7.1 magnitude on the Richter scale, causing  chaos and destruction to the country and its people. Nevertheless for those living in Sofia it is still a frightening experience, however frequently they occur here in Bulgaria. Both countries are situated in regions that are prone Earthquakes, but I guess no human being can ever get used to powers that are beyond them and acts of nature like these natural disasters that appear around the globe.
