Residents in towns in Israel’s North report feeling the tremors of an earthquake.

According to the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, it received reports from users in Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories, and believes the tremor was “likely a moderate magnitude one (below M4.5).”

Israel Police says a 3.7-magnitude earthquake in the area of Beit She’an, south of Tiberias, is felt, and dozens of people called police. No injuries or damage are reported and there is no tsunami warning in effect.

The Geological Survey of Israel’s seismology division later updates that the earthquake was of a 3.5 magnitude on the Richter scale.
