The Ghana Geological Survey Authority (GGSA) in a press release said the tremor which occurred at 9.40 am had a magnitude of 2.8 on the Richter scale.

“The epicentre is located 1.5km offshore near James Town in Greater Accra Region,” Isaac Kuuwan Mwinbelle, the acting director-general of the GGSA, said in a signed the statement.

“The recorded magnitude is indicative of the extent of the tremor. The earth tremor is a minor one and so it is not expected to cause damage”.

The earthquake was felt at Accra’s High Street, Ridge, Graphic Road, and a few other locations in Accra Central.

The GGSA asked the people to maintain calm and carry on with their regular activities in a release, stating that the event was a natural phenomenon and hence difficult to forecast.

“Education and sensitization of the public on awareness and response during earth tremors is important and currently being undertaken by the Authority”.
