Earthquake felt in the Kinneret area

BREAKING: An earthquake was felt in the Kinneret area in northern Israel, with a magnitude of 4.6 on the Richter scale, according to the Geophysical Institute of Israel.

No injuries or damage reported.


Following a series of tremors over the last weeks, Israeli residents should prepare for a major earthquake to rip through Israel from north to south, retired IDF Home Front Col. Gili Shenhar, said.

“In our area earthquakes happen. The last major earthquake struck in 1927, and the one before was in 1836, so we understand that every 100 years a serious earthquake strikes,” Col. Shenhar said.
