Minor Earthquake Hits Ghana in Accra and Other Regions
Parts of Ghana have been hit by an earth tremor. This occurred a few minutes to 11:00 pm on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. Citi News understands that the tremor was recorded in parts of the Greater Accra, Central and Eastern Region.
Some of the affected areas include Dansoman, Lapaz, Achimota, Gbawe, Weija, Madina, Nsawam, Koforidua, Swedru among others.
Mawuli Zogbenu, a resident of Weija said he experienced the earth three times.
“It started at exactly 10:48 pm. Initially, we thought because it was a rainy season, it was normal. But it happened again in a few seconds. And it happened the third time. As I speak with you a lot of families are out of their rooms trying to look for safety places,” he said in an interview.
Some Ghanaians in the affected areas also took to social media to announce their experiences:
Earth tremor? This is the third one I’m experiencing tonight. 😌🙏
