Judged as "light" by the French seismological centre (BCSF), the earthquake at 5.30am on Monday 7th January measured 4.1 on the Richter scale.
"The tremors have been felt inside homes near the epicentre in the north east of Guillestre and along the Durance," explained the BCSF to Nice Matin. This morning's incident follows a 4.2-strong earthquake on 3rd October, which was also felt on the Côte d'Azur due to its epicentre on the Italian border, near Cunéo.
