Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- A 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck in the wee hours of Tuesday off the Moroccan northern coast, nearby the city of Al Hoceima.
According to a statement from the National Geophysical Institute of the National Center for scientific and technical research (CNRST), the tumbler hit exactly at 4:40:38 am.

The north region of Morocco, including the southern one of Spain, witnessed recurrent earthquakes and seismic rebounds lately.
Spanish seismic experts Carlos López Casado and Jesús Henares predict that more seismic rebounds may occur in Morocco’s north this year, even though stressing that their magnitude is constantly decreasing.
The experts said that it is very difficult to predict an earthquake, but it is possible to tell if seismic rebounds may still occur or not.
