Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

2.6 @5km isn't really an EQ Very Happy

That's a hardly noticeable rumble.

It looks like it was actually “in” Courmayeur.

Anyhoo, we get such things often enough ...

Swiss Seismological Service (Zurich) map of all Magnitude 2 or greater earthquakes 1975 to 2018 plus the ten strongest historically (red dots) of which the strongest was Magnitude 6.6 near Basel in 1356 and our nearest strongest near Sierre in 1946 (magnitude 5.8 ) :



2019 was an above-average year for Swiss earthquakes, there were 48 'quakes felt by human observers last year against an average of 23/annum.

As apartment owners, we have earthquake damage included in our buildings insurance, but back in 2018 the co-proprietaires agreed - with considerable foresight - to get enhanced 'quake cover. The Valais is particularly prone to minor damage due to quakes, which is not surprising when you look at the map. @under a new name will also observe how the Rhone Valley cluster crosses the border and continues in the direction of Chamonix.

If you're interested the Swiss Seismological Service (http://seismo.ethz.ch/en/home/ has a 3-page public information sheet about earthquakes in the Alps (in English):

Evidently the dogs in Bourg SM sensed it earlier than the humans - they were howling 20 secs before the shaking!
