Were you afraid.. The Institute of Astronomy presents citizens with a questionnaire on the earthquake in Greece

The National Institute for Astronomical Research has prepared a questionnaire on the extent to which citizens have felt the earthquake that has hit Crete, Greece for the past few hours and has been felt by a large number of citizens in Greater Cairo and the Delta.

The questionnaire asked citizens a series of questions, including: did you feel the earthquake, the area where the earthquake was felt, was he asleep and was awakened by the earthquake, was he afraid, and other questions.

National network stations were recorded for monitoring earthquake This Monday, corresponding to November 21, 2022, an earthquake occurred in Greece (506 km north of Matrouh) connected to the institute and some international stations.

The National Institute for Astronomical Research, headed by Dr. Gad El-Kady announced that the earthquake data came as follows:

The time of occurrence and force is 1:24:52 local time

Strength: 5.8 on the Richter scale

Latitude: 35.86 north

Longitude: 26.62 East

The depth is 85 km

The national seismic network operates with 70 stations, the locations of which have been carefully chosen in light of the seismic history of all of Egypt.

The national seismic network is one of the most advanced networks in the world, and Egypt is one of the first countries in the world, North Africa and the Middle East in this field, as it dates back more than 150 years, and we have the largest seismic history in the world, the more It dates back more than 5,000 years, although monitoring of earthquakes began at the beginning of the twentieth century, but the ancient Egyptian civilization and history of earthquakes in all history books goes back more than 5,000 years, giving weight and strength to Egypt in monitoring and dealing with it with such natural phenomena.

Regarding the classification of Egypt and its global position among the most seismic areas, Egypt is far from seismic belts as there are 7 known seismic belts in the world and Egypt is far from it, but Egypt’s proximity to some seismically active areas like z how the Gulf of Aqaba, the Gulf of Suez and the Red Sea are affecting us Some moderate magnitude earthquakes and the resilience of Egyptian society to absorb the shock now is the key factor in reducing the resulting losses.
