Hours earlier, residents of Greater Cairo felt, at dawn today, an earthquake, an "earthquake."

The users of social networking circulated news of an earthquake, which was felt by a large number of residents of Greater Cairo and the governorates across the country, while no official data has been issued so far by the National Institute for Astronomical Research on the earthquake.

However, last week, the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research recorded a 6-magnitude earthquake in the eastern Mediterranean, 502 km from the Egyptian coast.

At the time, the National Institute said in a statement that a 6-magnitude earthquake shook the eastern Mediterranean region.

The national earthquake network operates through 70 stations whose locations were carefully chosen in light of the seismic history of all of Egypt.

It has become impossible for any earthquake to occur without recording and monitoring it, regardless of its strength, even if it is less than zero.

The national seismic network is one of the most modern networks in the world, and Egypt is one of the first countries in the world, North Africa, and the Middle East in this field, with a history dating back more than 150 years.
