An earth tremor was said to have occurred around 10:00 am and 11:53 am respectively at an estimated magnitude of 4.0, 10 km from Gbawe, in Ghana.
Some residents of Kokomlemle, Kaneshie, Achimota, Adenta, Circle, Osu, Ablekuma Manhean, Accra, New Town, Legon, Dansoman, Kasoa, Haatso, Kwashiman, Teshie, Nungua, McCarthy Hill among others said they felt the earth movement.
Nicholas Opoku, the Principal Seismologist at the Ghana Geological Survey Authority (GGSA), has urged Ghanaians not to be worried about the latest earth tremor.
He, however, advised citizens in Accra to be prepared to experience such tremors from time to time since the region finds itself in an earthquake zone.
“This is not a new thing we have been experiencing this from time to time…even the most recent ones were in 2018, 2019, and 2020. What we have been saying all this while is that Accra is situated in the earthquake-prone zones so from time to we will be experiencing these minor earthquakes until such a time that a major will happen,” Mr. Opoku told the press on Monday.
Some social media users have taken to their timelines to share their experience hours after the earth tremors hit some parts of the Greater Accra Region.
Earth Tremor is currently trending at number two on Twitter as some tweeps are still in shock from their experience while others sought to confirm if what they felt wasn’t peculiar to them.
