Hello guys,
There are earthquakes in Qatar ?

Today 20.07.2010 at 22:50 - 22:55 my building in doha jadeed was shaking quite good for around 10 sec or more.

Can somebody confirm if it happened in other places also.

i looked on the map and i saw an earthquake in the southern Iran of 5.8 so maybe it reached untill here .

shapil

haseeb.b

it is still not confermd..but we also felt a jolt here same place doha jadeeda... i think it wasnt an earth quake. just some construction work going on around i gues...

galloper48

West Bay Area, 24th floor.

It moved like the wind was shaking a plam tree on the beach.

First I thought it was a sensation (dizzines) but now that you mention it, I get the reason why the shake.

Regards!!

If there was a Quake, I'm pretty sure we would have got some confirmed news.

One things about Qatar is that all the buildings are flimsy...I think I recall long time back about 20 years ago, a big engine plane landed in Doha (was it the Concorde?) and the nearby buildings were shaking...

Most likely some construction work must have resulted in the shake...but then again...I dunno, I'm only assuming!

soniya

OMG !! really...I didn't notice it..

unyopogs

yes i confirmed this. I felt it when I was smoking and surfing the net in my bed yesterday night then suddenly I feel a little dizziness and my bed (airbed) was shaking.

So I was not alone in feeling that little and sudden shaking. I didnt notice the time anymore but it could be around 10pm last night. i felt a short shaking but i tried to look at the other things in the house and non was moving so I just thought it was just a movement from the little one inside my tummy.

My flat is located in the 11th floor in one building in Musheireb.

QLfan

Moderate earthquake rattles southern Iran
A moderate 5.8-magnitude earthquake jolted Iran’s southern coast last night, the US Geological Survey said. The quake struck at 1938 GMT some 160km south of Jahrom and 975km southeast of the capital Tehran, at a depth of 10km.

Lapatianco

I think you felt yesterday's earthquake originated in southern Iran. It was a 5.1 quake with no consequences as far as I know.
The time matches perfectly, so I think it's reasonable to assume that this is what you felt.

if it was an earth quake, it may be the continuous vibration from Iran. You may be right, the very very old buildings remains in Qatar is at Doha Jadeed. So that it wasnt noticable for the rest. Better escape from Doha Jadeeda Now!!!

I read in the arabic newspaper that an earthquake happened in the south of iran 300Km from doha coast 5.4 Richter
