An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 has hit Tanzania in East Africa.

The seismic waves of the earthquake were felt in parts of neighbouring Kenya.

The tremors were felt in Kenya’s coastal town of Mombasa and parts of the capital, Nairobi.

It comes days after residents living around Kenya’s Lake Baringo reported tremors as water levels in the lake rise due to heavy rains.

For the past two weeks the tremors have been reported by people living as far as 7km from the lake almost every night.
