Authorities responded to calls from residents in the towns of Chrzanów, Libiąż and Żarki, who reported damage to their homes.
A senior member of the firefighters in the Małopolskie region – where the earthquake happened – told Polish Radio's IAR news service that they received 13 calls so far.
There were no reports of injuries. Currently, firefighters are investigating the extent of damage to buildings.
In the village Żarki, two families were evacuated from their homes because of serious defects in the construction of their home.
A collapse in a mine in Libiąż likely caused the tremor. (rg/rk)
