Shocker: Earth Tremor Causes Panic In Kaduna Community

Published

on

Residents of Kwoi community in Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been living in fear over what they described as an earth tremor which occurred on Saturday.

A resident of the community described to our correspondent on telephone how the underground vibration shakes houses in the affected community to their foundations.

He said that residents have fled their homes for fear of being caught unawares by the disturbing occurrence.

Meanwhile, the Kaduna state government has appealed to the people of the community to be calm.
In a statement issued on Sunday by spokesman to the state governor, Samuel Aruwan, the government said that a formal report has been made to the appropriate authorities to investigate the development and issue appropriate guidance.

The statement directs the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to mobilise its officials to the area and to monitor the situation and assist the people in case of any emergency.

An earth tremor, according to geologists, is the perceptible shaking of the surface of the earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the earth’s crust that creates seismic waves.
