Earth tremors hit parts of Accra

Ghana’s capital Accra experienced three earth tremors late Saturday evening.

The first which was the strongest lasted for about 5 seconds around 11.30pm before two minor quakes followed close to 12am Sunday.

Areas which recorded the tremors were Weija-Gbawe, Kasoa, New Bortianor, McCarthy Hill, Awoshie, Abelemkpe, Tabora, Achimota, Ablekuma, Kissiman, Westland, Madina, Legon, Sowutuom and Santa Maria.

The Geological Survey Department is yet to give an update about the latest tremor which sent some residents into panic mode.

Some took to social media to share their experiences:

The last time Accra experienced tremor was on January 13, 2019. It measured 2.6 on the Richter Scale, the Ghana Geological Survey Authority (GGSA) confirmed.
The tremor, which lasted about six seconds, occurred about 18 km away from the Achimota Station of the GGSA, according to the reading on the seismometer there, which also showed that the epicentre of the tremor was around Weija.
