Malta might currently be going through a political quake, but it was a literal one that nudged people out of bed this morning.

At around 8:30am, statuses asking whether anyone had felt a tremor appeared on Facebook. Many people confirmed from various localities around the island, from Floriana to Siġġiewi.

The University’s Seismic Monitoring and Research Group does indeed show a spike registered from Xlendi earlier this morning at 7:23am… right around the same time that Crete felt the brunt of a 6.2 magnitude earthquake.

Eastern Europe has had a devastating week of earthquakes; just yesterday, a 6.4 quake hit Albania, killing at least 23 people and injuring some 600 more.

In the hours that followed, at least 12 other tremors were felt around Albania, Greece and even Turkey, with magnitudes ranging from 3.7 to this morning’s 6.2 earthquake that was 43 kilometres west of a Grecian island.

In the meantime, UOM’s Seismic Monitoring and Research Group has published an online questionnaire with the hopes of properly calculating the earthquake’s intensity and effects back in Malta.
