The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) recorded 5.1-magnitude earthquake in Southern Iran on Monday at 2:58pm, UAE time. Tremors were recorded in parts of Dubai, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah.

Sarah Gasapo, a Filipina Engineer told Guf News that they felt the building shaking.

“Out of the blue we felt the building shake. It wasn’t that strong but because we’re on the 19th floor of the Deira Twin Towers, we felt it,” she said.

Another experience was shared by 30 year old Jordanian, Zainah Mahmoud, said that she noticed her chair was moving while she was on the balcony.

“I felt it twice and it was fast, she said.”

“At first I didn’t realize what was going on as the chair was moving to the right and left and when it stopped another shake started immediately after the first one,” she added.

Lastly, no damages were reported.
