Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake in northwest Algeria.

The Centre Seismologique Euro-Méditeranéen  recorded a Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake at a depth of 10 km in southwestern about 16 km to the west of the town of ’Aïn el Turk on the northwest coast of Algeria, slightly before 10.25 am local time (slightly before 11.25 am GMT) on Monday 11 February 2019. There are no reports of any damage or casualties associated with this event, though it may have been felt locally.

 The approximate location of the 11 February 2019 ’Aïn el Turk Earthquake. USGS.

Algeria lies on the northernmost part of the African Plate, while southern Europe to the north is part of Eurasia. Africa is pushing into Europe from the south, which causes Earthquakes around the Mediterranean Basin. These are most common in southeast Europe, but those in northwest Africa, while less frequent, are often larger and more deadly.
