Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake in Batna Province, Algeria.

The United States Geological Survey recorded a Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake at a depth of 10 km, about 11 km to the northwest of the city of Merouana in Batna Province, Algeria, at about 3.50 pm local time (about 2.50 pm GMT) on Tuesday 15 August 2017. There are no reports of any damage or injuries associated with this event, though people have reported feeling it in Merouana and N'gaous.

The approximate location of the 15 August 2017 Merouana Earthquake. USGS.

Algeria lies on the northernmost part of the African Plate, while southern Europe to the north is part of Eurasia. Africa is pushing into Europe from the south, which causes Earthquakes around the Mediterranean Basin. These are most common in southeast Europe, but those in northwest Africa, while less frequent, are often larger and more deadly.
