Residents Of Weija-Gbawe Experienced Another Frightening Tremor On Saturday Night

An earth tremor rocked various places around Gbawe, CP, Mallam and its environs on Saturday night at about 11:28 PM.

The tremor, which lasted for a few seconds, could be heard rumbling onto the horizon as it startled both residents and dogs who begun barking.

The Mallam-Weija area has been identified by seismologists as an earthquake prone area.

On December 9 last year, a similar incident occurred early that Sunday morning.

A similar incident also occurred in March 2018 with residents experiencing the tremor as many as three times within a day.

The Geological Survey Authority (GGSA) said in December 2018 that it had picked information about the expected tremor days earlier because it realized that faulty lines in the affected areas were active.

The fast-sprawling town of Kasoa in the Central Region and Gbawe in the Greater Accra Region share spoils with regards to the number of quakes.

The most recent earthquake, with a 5.9 magnitude and a 33-kilometre depth, occurred at 3 p.m. on September 26, 2007, 11 years ago, 385.2 kilometres from Takoradi, while 21 years ago at 3:16 p.m. on March 6, 1997, another one measuring 4.4 in magnitude and with a depth of 10 kilometres occurred 6.2 kilometres from Gbawe, Citi FM reported when the December 2018 incident occurred.

Keep the residents of Weija-Gbawe in your prayers.🙏
