Mysterious tremors recorded near the site of the Nord Stream explosion

Anomalous tremors were recorded over the weekend near the Danish island of Bornholm, near where the Nord Stream gas pipeline was blown up last year. Local authorities cannot explain their origin, writes Bloomberg.

The incident took place on May 13 and deeply affected the inhabitants of the island. Initially, seismologists suggested that the tremors were the result of an earthquake or a controlled explosion in neighboring Poland, but later rejected these versions, according to a statement by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland’s GEUS.

The tremors were likely caused by “sound pressure waves from one or more events somewhere in the atmosphere,” GEUS said in a statement. However, researchers cannot explain what caused the impact underground.

Over the weekend, residents of the island heard dull roars, windows in houses shattered, and there was pressure in their ears. Concerned islanders contacted the authorities. The magnitude of the tremor was 2.3 on the Richter scale, which corresponds to a minor earthquake, writes Bloomberg.

The investigation into the explosions on the two branches of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, which took place on September 26, 2022, is still ongoing. The damaged sections lie in the exclusive economic zones of Sweden and Denmark. The incidents are being investigated by the law enforcement agencies of both Nordic countries and Germany. Everyone came to the conclusion that it was sabotage, but it is still unknown who is behind it.

In March, several Western media simultaneously reported that a “pro-Ukrainian group” may have been involved in the pipeline explosions. In Kiev, they said that they had nothing to do with this incident and had no information about it. The Kremlin considered the articles stuffed and an attempt to divert attention from the real organizers of the sabotage.

In addition, “Information” reported that 4 days before the explosions, there was a Russian special ship SS-750 with a mini-submarine on board near the gas pipelines.
