Dhadna, a community in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates (UAE), recently had a mild tremor with a magnitude of 3.2 on the Richter scale at 10:51 AM (UAE local time).
Monitoring stations of the National Seismological Network and the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) both reported a mild earthquake in the aforementioned location.
The news was instantly shared on the NCM’s official Twitter account. It offered extensive facts about the earthquake and assured locals that there were no reported damages or injuries.
The NCM’s experts continue to monitor seismic activity in the region. The idea is to analyse and predict these events in order to be better prepared.
The tremor in Dhadna is considered a small occurrence that occurs frequently in the UAE. The infrastructure of the country is designed to endure such seismic activity. This design helps to reduce potential harm while also keeping residents safe.
According to an NCM specialist previously mentioned by Khaleej Times, the UAE suffers low to moderate seismicity. Because the country is not located in an active seismic area, it is generally safe.
