The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) just reported a 5.2-magnitude earthquake in Western Mediterranean Sea, Algeria at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Béjaïa, El Kseur, Colmar, el Hed and Barbacha. More details to follow.
