- The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has not responded to cases of earth tremors
- Residents say the tremor lasted for hours
- The GMA is also warning of terrible rains as the rainy season approaches
The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) is yet to officially comment on reports of an earth tremor across some areas in Accra over the weekend.
YEN.com.gh gathered that some parts of Accra experienced some earth tremors at dawn and the afternoon of March 24.
In fact, residents of Weija-Broadcasting, Sampa Valley, SCC, West Hills Mall area, Gbawe, Anyaa, all expressed concerns over the tremor.
The tremors caused panic among some residents of the affected areas, with some fearing the trembling could be followed by an earthquake.
An earth tremor is a relatively small or short-lived movement of the earth's surface caused by the same forces that produce earthquakes.
Here in Ghana, the only severe earth tremor was recorded way back in 1999 to 2000 - a development which left many buildings with wide cracks.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) has released basic safety tips for Ghanaians ahead of what it describes as heavy and protracted rains from April to July.
Below are the six safety tips:
1. Don't use a mobile phone when raining.
2. Switch off your TV set.
3. Avoid holding metallic objects.
4. Stay away from transformers and electronic objects.
5 Stay away from mirrors and glass objects.
6. Don't take your bath when it's raining.
