The director of the Jordanian Seismological Observatory Ghassan Sweidan told Roya Friday that the observatory did not record any earthquakes in the past 24 hours.

Sweidan stated that the observatory, like other international seismological observatories, monitors seismic events around the clock.

He explained that the last seismic activity recorded by the Jordanian Seismological Observatory was on August 28, when an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 on the Richter scale was recorded in Madaba. It occurred at a depth of 7 kilometers and is considered a minor earthquake that some citizens near the epicenter might feel.

He pointed out that there are more than 20 stations for monitoring seismic activity distributed across Jordan.
