An earthquake measuring 3.5 Richter in the delta, 10 km southeast of Mahalla al-Kubra


Today, Sunday, 11/22/2020, the institute’s National Seismic Network stations recorded an earthquake in the Delta, 10 km southeast of Mahalla al-Kubra

Dr. Gad El-Qady, head of the institute, revealed that the earthquake data came as follows:

Strength: 3.5 on the Richter scale

Latitude: 30.93N

Longitude: 31.25 east

Depth: 21 km

The Institute did not hear any feeling from some citizens of this tremor.

The National Seismic Network operates through 70 stations whose locations have been carefully selected in light of the seismic history of all of Egypt, and it has become impossible for any earthquake to occur without recording and monitoring it, regardless of its strength, even if it is less than zero.

The national seismic network is one of the most recent networks in the world, and Egypt is one of the first countries in the world, North Africa and the Middle East in this field, as it dates back more than 150 years and we have the largest seismic history in the world dating back more than 5 thousand years, although the monitoring of Earthquakes began with the beginning of the twentieth century, but the ancient Egyptian civilization and the history of earthquakes in the history books all date back to more than 5 thousand years, which gives weight and strength to Egypt in monitoring and dealing with such natural phenomena.
