Aftermath of an earth tremor

Significant parts of Accra experienced about four earth tremors on the night of Wednesday, June 24.

The tremors, which occurred about four times varied in how it was experienced.

While others were mild others were also serious with some setting off dogs who started barking.

Parts of Kasoa and Accra – Weija, McCarthy hill, Sowutuom, Anyaa and its environs are known to be fault lines with the potential of causing an earthquake.

Some residents left their houses and went out onto the streets especially after the fourth tremor was felt.

While Accra, Ghana was dealing with its own situation, in far away New Zealand, they were also experiencing their own earthquake.

The 6.0 magnitude earthquake reportedly sent parked vehicles rolling around the carpark, according to the New Zealand Herald.
