A light quake hit a few areas in Kenya on Sunday, including Nairobi, Nyeri, Mombasa, Machakos, Makueni, Tharaka Nithi, Taita Taveta, and Kiambu.

The earth tremors were experienced on Sunday evening at around 7 pm and went on for a few seconds.

The Kenya Meteorological Department affirmed the quake in a telephone call to NTV Kenya yet said there is no reason to get excited.

As indicated by my source, a 4.8 mag-quake hit Wundanyi in Taita Taveta County at 7.21pm.

Another seismic tremor tracker, www.emsc-csem.org, revealed a size 4 shudder in Spain with a profundity of 10km that happened about a similar time as the one felt in Kenya.

Scott Bellows, who is a speaker at the United States International University-Africa, composing on Twitter, said those in seaside Kenya (Mombasa, Kilifi, Malindi, Lamu, and Diani) should look for higher ground as a safeguard.

Mr. Bellows, in any case, isn’t a geologist however an associate teacher of the board at USIU-Africa.

“Leave low lying territories close to the shoreline until given an all-reasonable after geologists pinpoint seismic tremor epicenter. Conceivable Tsunami” said Mr. Bellows

After the tremors, lights went out in a few regions despite the fact that it isn’t evident that the power outage was connected to the seismic tremor.
