Statistical studies show that four to five 2.5–3.5 magnitude earthquakes can be expected every year in Hungary, which can be felt near the epicenter, but cause no damage. Earthquakes causing light damages occur every 15–20 years, while stronger, more damaging 5.5–6 magnitude quakes happen about every 40–50 years.
