Moderate Earthquake Shakes Uganda

March 16, 2011

Earthquake-Report.com, an earthquake reporting website described the tremor in Uganda as “moderately dangerous”, but did not give details. Earthquakes are not very common in Uganda but the western region of the country has over the years been more prone to it.

Many parts of the world have in recent years been rocked by earthquakes with the latest case being Japan the 8.9-magnitute tremor struck on Friday, March 11 off the Coast of Honshu Island in the north east of the capital Tokyo.

Experts have reported that the Japan quake that has killed thousands of people is nearly 8,000 times stronger than last month’s quake in New Zealand.
