“The strength is considerable for our area,” said Matthias Kracht from the seismological service.
On Sunday the fire service was still securing homes and inspecting cracks in walls in Nieder-Beerbach.
All but one family was able to return to their home on Saturday night and nobody was injured, but the damage to the homes was estimated at around €1 million.
The area was also hit by an earthquake at the end of March which was 3.2 on the Richter scale.
