Many residents in Ghana’s capital, Accra have been left in a panic mood after the city experienced at least three instances of earth tremor.

The first earth tremor according to some residents occurred just before 11pm local time on Wednesday.

That was followed by a second one a few minutes apart with massive impact.

Then a third one was also experienced by residents in the city minutes later, sparking panic.

It was the first time in recent years that almost the entire city of Accra experienced such a tremor at the same time in such a sequence.

There are no reports of any major devastation to property and life as a result of the tremor though.

An earth tremor is an involuntary movement of earth surface caused by stress in the underground rocks.

Just like an earthquake tremor is also a sign of seismic movement within the earth.

On social media users shared their experiences, expressing worry and anxiety over the incident.
