An hour ago the Swiss Seismological Service (SED) reported a 4.5-magnitude earthquake near Albertville, Savoie, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France at a shallow depth of 10km. The earthquake was initially reported to be magnitude 4.2 by SED but was later revised upwards.
The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.
People living close to the epicenter of the quake felt the earthquake as light shaking. This include Grignon (pop. 2,000) located 1 km from the epicenter, Albertville (pop. 19,100) 3 km away, Seynod (pop. 18,600) located 34 km from the epicenter, Annecy (pop. 49,200) 34 km away, Annecy-le-Vieux (pop. 21,500) 35 km away, Cran-Gevrier (pop. 19,400) 35 km away, Aix-les-Bains (pop. 27,700) 36 km away, and Chambery (pop. 61,600) 36 km away.
