Magnitude 6.0 Earthquake Hits Kenya and Tanzania

CAPTION: Magnitude 6.0 tremor hits some parts of Kenya and Tanzania


A strong, dangerous magnitude 6.0 earthquake on Wednesday evening hit about 82 kilometres South East of Tanzania’s capital city  Dar es Salaam, beneath the Indian Ocean.

At the time of reporting, depth estimates were around 10KM with people in Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar Island, and other nearby areas including Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa experiencing moderate to strong shaking.

Light damage is expected to occur in these areas.

Even in Arusha (593 kilometres North West of the epicenter) and multiple parts of lower-Central Kenya (Nairobi and its environs) some people reported light shaking.

Not many earthquakes of such size have occurred in recent history in this region as it is far from plate boundaries and major faults.
