The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) denied reports claiming that an earthquake hit some parts of the UAE on Tuesday, October 9.

In a statement, NCMS said that no tremors were recorded in the UAE on Tuesday evening.

Reports claim that a weak earthquake was felt in Ras Al Khaimah and the northern emirates.

NCM said that a minor earthquake measuring 2.1 on the Richter scale was recorded in the northeast of Bandar Abbas in southern Iran at 8.59 p.m. This, however, had nothing to do with the alleged tremors that were felt in the UAE.

The news regarding the earthquake began circulating after residents in the northern emirates reportedly heard an “explosion”. The “very loud noise”, as per some social media posts of residents, was reportedly heard in Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain.
