Two underwater explosions, or shakings, were recorded in the Baltic Sea shortly before leaks were found in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, which were pressurized with natural gas. Both pipelines were not operational.

The first shaking, measuring 2.3 on the Richter scale, was recorded southeast of Bornholm, a Danish island, the Guardian reported, citing Denmark’s Geological Survey. The second, with a magnitude 2.1 earthquake, was reported northeast of the island.
