No, you weren’t just imagining the ground shaking. That was an earthquake… and it was actually really close to the Maltese islands this time.
A 3.7 magnitude earthquake actually occurred just 15 kilometres north of Gozo, University of Malta’s Seismic Monitoring and Research Group just confirmed on Facebook.
It appears the earthquake occurred at around 10:24pm, with SMRG reporting that it was “felt clearly in Gozo and northern Malta”.
Earlier tonight, at 8:24pm, a 3.3 magnitude earthquake showed up just east of Malta on SMRG’s earthquake-tracking site.
SMRG have requested the general public to fill out a questionnaire on their website should they have experienced this earthquake or any similar tremors.
