Kenya on Sunday experienced earth tremors at around 7.20 pm.

The tremors were felt in several counties including Mombasa, Nyeri, Makueni, Kiambu, and Nairobi. Meteorological services said the tremor was also felt in Naivasha and Nakuru.

According to the USGS, an earthquake hazard programme, the earth tremor was measured at a magnitude of 4.8 and a depth of 9km, 41 km NNW of Wundanyi, in Taita Taveta County.

The Kenya Meteorological department noted that no significant damage was caused.

Residents at the Coast were also advised to seek higher ground and leave low lying areas near the beach until given an all-clear after geologists pinpoint the epicenter of the earth tremor.

On Twitter, Kenyans in their droves shared their experiences and as you would expect, some found humor in the rare seismic activity.
