An earthquake measuring 3.38 on the Richter scale struck Saudi Arabia’s Tabuk region on Sunday evening, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The seismic event occurred at a depth of 19.37 kilometers and 48 kilometers northwest of the city of Tabuk, SPA quoted the Saudi Geological Survey Authority as saying.
No aftershocks were recorded from the earthquake, which a Saudi Geological Survey spokesperson said was considered weak and not dangerous.
