About half an hour ago, the small Moroccan coastal town of Tarfaya, located southwest of the main cities of the Kingdom of Morocco, was hit by an earthquake measuring 4.9 on the Richter scale. The epicenter is located 16 km from Tarfaya at a shallow depth of 2 km, and the area around the earthquake is mostly uninhabited. But within minutes of the earthquake, we received multiple reports from users 400 kilometers from the epicenter, in the main city of Agadir in Morocco, who felt the earthquake was short and mild. Some users described the earthquake as “a single vertical bump”, and there were no injuries or property damage so far. Tsunami warnings are not expected from this earthquake. Expect minor damage in the vicinity of the earthquake, as well as anticipate aftershocks.
