February 2, 2013AUSTRIA - A 4.5-magnitude quake shook southern Austria on Saturday, the country's ZAMG meteorological and geodynamic institute said, but it was not immediately clear whether it had caused any damage. The quake struck at 14:35 pm (1335 GMT) and "was strongly felt" in the Karavanke mountain range bordering Slovenia, near Eisenkappel in Austria's southern state of Carinthia, the centre said. About two months ago, an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 4.3 on the Richter scale hit the Slovenian side of the Karavanke mountain range, some 25 kilometers (15 miles) southwest of the Austrian border. In the year 2000, Austria's eastern provinces and its capital Vienna were shaken by the strongest earthquake in 20 years, Austrian television reported.

The quake, which measured 4.8 on the Richter scale, caused minor damage to buildings in the provinces of Lower Austria and Burgenland. The epicenter was in the Lower Austrian town of Ebreichsdorf, some 20 km (13 miles) south of Vienna. –Global Post People's Daily
