5.0 quake 22 Nov 4:53 am (GMT +1)
A shallow magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported early morning near the town of Didouche Mourad, Algeria.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Sunday 22 November 2020 at 4.53 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.3.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage. Moderate shaking probably occurred in Didouche Mourad (pop. 25,800) located 15 km from the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Hamma Bouziane (pop. 63,000) located 20 km from the epicenter, Constantine (pop. 450,100) 24 km away, Tamalous (pop. 32,600) 30 km away, El Khroub (pop. 83,700) 34 km away, Skikda (pop. 162,700) 38 km away, Batna (pop. 280,800) 123 km away, and Sétif (pop. 288,500) 123 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you’re in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.

  • Hi everybody I'm Mr Badr Belghoul, today in Constantine a moderate earthquake was felt by all the citizens . The shakng started at 4h57 approximately , and it was a horizontal movement which lasted at least 15 sec . Due to its shallowness , this earthquake ( 5.3 on the Richter scale ) was felt as an 6.2 one. Thank Allah we are safe.
