Location and user reports for this night's quake south of Malta
At 3.01 am, an earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred south of Malta. Light to moderate shaking was felt all over the island, most pronounced in the southern part, where many people woke up from their sleep.
There are no reports of significant damages. Quakes in Malta are not uncommon as the island is near the active Sicily Channel, related to the tectonic plate boundary between Africa and Europe.
