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.
