1927 Crimean earthquakes
The 1927 Crimean earthquakes occurred on June 26 and September 11–12, 1927 in the waters of the Black Sea, hitting the Crimean peninsula. The June earthquake hit with a force of 6-7 on the Richter scale, while the one in mid-September was reported to have been up to 9 on the Richter scale near the city of Yalta.
During the September earthquake, observers reported seeing large fiery flares erupting from the Black Sea ranging from 20 to 500 metres high. These flames were probably caused by the combustion of methane eruptions triggered by the earthquake.
