Residents of Pyatigorsk, located at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains, as well as Zheleznovodsk felt these earth vibrations. This was reported by the heads of the cities Dmitry Voroshilov and Yevgeny Bakulin . Note that in Zheleznovodsk the earthquake was somewhat stronger – with a magnitude of 4.6.

“So far, there are no reports of damage and casualties from territorial services and EDDS (Unified Duty Dispatch Service – ed.). There are no aftershocks,” Voroshilov wrote on the Web.

To his message, he added instructions on what to do in the event of an earthquake.

At the same time, Bakulin said that EDDS received 16 phone calls regarding the earthquake. He recommended the residents of the city to leave the buildings in case of repeated shocks.
