The Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES) of Armenia issued a statement regarding the earthquake that hit the region Monday.

It noted that an earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred Monday in the Georgia-Armenia border zone, not far from Bavra village of Armenia, and it measured magnitude 6 at the epicenter.

The MES added that based on the information that the number of respective anomalies in Armenia has generally decreased and the intensity of these anomalies has weakened, as well as on the fact that all the aftershocks following the above-mentioned earthquake are currently weaker than the noted shock, it can be assumed that the tension accumulated in the earth's crust is gradually relaxing; and this means that there are no reasons to worry—and even more so to panic.

The MES noted, however, that given the force of the aforesaid quake, there may be new aftershocks, some of which will be felt by the local population.
