5.9 magnitude earthquake 66 km from Kilindoni, Pwani, Tanzania – August 12, 2020. Impact felt in Mombasa, Kenya

A very strong dangerous earthquake was felt along the coast of Tanzania on Wednesday evening. According to USGS the epicenter was located about 150 kilometer south-east of Dar es Salaam. Moderate intensities were recorded across Daressalam and on Zanzibar island. However, due to the distance between epicenter and coast, the impact of the quake will be reduced. Minor to moderate damage (cracked walls, etc.) is still likely in coastal areas of Pwani region. People in this area should also expect an aftershock sequence.

Weak intensities were also felt in parts of Kenya, especially around Mombasa. No damage should be expected there. Some Kenyans reported some cracks on the walls

Earthquakes along the coast of Tanzania are relatively rare and today’s event has been the strongest in decades. The seismic activity there still results from the tectonic processes along the Eastern African Rift Valley, although it runs further inland.

People near the epicenter reported that the quake came in two waves; first there was “around 8 to 10 seconds of vibration and then a 2 second long shock“, a user told Volcano Discovery.

There is no tsunami threat from this quake.
