Some parts of Accra and the Central region on Wednesday night experienced earth tremor.
The affected areas included Dansoman, Oprah Square, James Town, Dome, Ashorman and Kasoa Kwabenya.
Many residents said the earth shook under them.
Starr News sources say similar incidents occurred in parts of the United States and Japan.
Speaking to Starr News, David Nana Boakye, a resident of Dansoma-Shiabu said the shaking occurred twice causing him to move quickly out of his room to ask neighbours what was happening.
Mr Boakye said for the past 13 years living in the area, “this is the first time experiencing such an event.”
“When I heard the sound, I quickly came out to see what was happening and we are still outside trying to see what will happen. While I came outside, I went to the room to check on my machine and it came again,” he added.
Another resident, Frank Asare said, “I was eating when I felt the sound which moved my plate of food placed on the dining table.”
Information gathered indicates that in some places, the earth tremor happened three times with the second one being severe.
