Some residents say that their furniture "started vibrating" and thought it unusual and couldn't have been an earthquake until their fears were validated by users on social media who claimed to have also felt the tremor.

The West African country is not within the major earthquake zones of the world, but Volcano Discovery, on its website says that the earthquake experienced in Ghana had a 4.0 magnitude, which usually causes little to no damages.
