The moderate M4.9 earthquake occurred in northern Algeria on August 7th, 06:15 UTC.
The shallow quake (10km or 6.3 miles depth) woke up many people as it hit 3 km NNE of Sidi Mérouane and approx. 50 km NW of the historic town and regional capital Constantine (463,000 residents).
The first earthquake was followed by a 4.5 aftershock a few hours later.
Shaking was reported within a 70 km radius, especially in Sidi Mérouane (pop: approx. 20,000), where the ground shook heavily.
Although there are no reports of damage or injuries, the quake was strong enough to destroy 3 houses, including a four-storey villa and 31 other apartments.
The quake also caused cracks in walls, buildings, roads and the landscape. A road had to be closed down.
In 2003, a M6.7 earthquake hit the capital and nearby areas, killing more than 2,000 people.
