A 2.1 magnitude earthquake was recorded on the Richter scale in the UAE on Wednesday afternoon.

The NCM identified the earthquake coming from East Masafi, on the border of Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.

Back in October, residents of the Northern Emirates reported feeling ‘tremors’ after an earthquake was recorded in North East Bandar Abbas, south of Iran – however the NCM confirmed at the time that the tremors were not connected to that earthquake.
