Second Time This Week: Earthquake Felt In Israel

For the second time this week and the sixth time since the beginning of the month, an earthquake was felt in Israel on Wednesday morning at 8:01 a.m.

The earthquake, which measured 4.5 on the Richter scale, was mainly felt in northern Israel as its epicenter was near the city of Tyre, in Lebanon. However, some residents of central Israel also reported feeling the tremor.

Naftali Gleitman, who lives near Tiveria, told Ynet: “I felt all the furniture in the house moving and then the floor moved, it was really scary. It feels like the quakes are getting closer to Israel but no was one injured and nothing was damaged here.”

Ohad Hazan from Kiryat Bialik said: “At 08:02 a.m., I felt the bed move for about three seconds. It was the first time I felt an earthquake. We live in a 24-story building, and it seems that everyone felt it this time. We hope for the best because it’s getting really stressful.”
