On the night of 19 October, presumably at 2:45, the inhabitants of the Sverdlovsk region experienced noticeable tremors, which began to vibrate the walls of buildings. As outlined in the Ministry of emergency situations of the region, the epicenter of the earthquake with magnitude around 4 were in 35 km to the East of the town of mikhaylovsk.

The inhabitants of the Sverdlovsk region witnessed a severe earthquake is estimated professionals tremors of similar strength in the region over the past 300 years has happened a maximum of 6 times. To control the situation the Ministry of emergency situations deployed operational headquarters.

"In the Main Department of EMERCOM of Russia in Sverdlovsk region was established on 2 operational teams. People's livelihoods are not violated," - said in the news Department. The quake was felt, according to estimates of emergency services, in 3 localities of the region - Ekaterinburg, Novouralsk and Pervouralsk. They were created control groups that are monitoring the situation.

Also, experts managed to establish the epicenter of the seismic shocks, which were in 35 km to the East from the metropolis of mikhaylovsk. The magnitude recorded at 2:45 night of the earthquake was 4.1. Scientists say that the tremors of such force occur periodically in the region, but with large intervals in time.

"There were aftershocks stronger and weaker. The aftershocks of a magnitude of about 4 points befall with a maximum interval in 116 years. But this does not mean that such intervals they will happen always. Development forecasting under this option are extremely difficult. However if this is not an explosion, but actually an earthquake, the probability that it will be repeated in the foreseeable future is extremely small" - quoted by local newspaper E1.ru senior scientific worker of the Institute of Geophysics Ural branch of RAS Alexander Gulyaev.

He added that in the process of aftershocks is re-formation of the Ural mountains. "There was a period when our country was plain, then there was quite a high mountain. Gradually they broke up and the last 17 to 30 million years again pass through a stage of formation. In this sense, our mountains can be compared to Tien Shan and Altai. And here the process of development interfaced with shocks", - stated Aleksandr Gulyaev.
