The effects of pumping out all the gas from under the Northern Netherlands continue to be felt as yet another earthquake hit the Groninger village of Huizinge yesterday evening. The 2.3 magnitude (on the Richter scale) earthquake shook houses at about 19:46. As reported by the GIC.
The quake was felt around the Huizinge area, with residents taking to social media to voice their concerns. One resident said that the quake was the most powerful they had experienced in the area.
According to the Dutch meterological office, the ‘induced’ quake was at a depth of about 3.0km, and tremors were recorded as far away as in Loppersum and Uithuizen.
