I am at the northern regional center of the Seismic Protection Territorial Service SNCO of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia. This is what Governor of Shirak Province Tigran Petrosyan wrote on his Facebook page.
“Starting from the first shock until 9:30 p.m., there have been nearly 30 aftershocks, the dynamics of which and other types of seismic measurements show that the shocks are declining.
Based on the results of our consultation held at the regional governor’s office, the earthquake didn’t cause damages in Shirak Province.
This serves as another strong signal for all of us to be alert and prepared.
Good night,” he wrote.
