Magnitude 3.9 Earthquake to the north of Lake Edward, Central Africa.

The United States Geological Survey Recorded a Magnitude 3.9 Earthquake at a depth of 10.0 km on the border between North Kivu Province, Democratic Republic of Congo and the Western Region of Uganda, about 5 km to the north of Lake Edward, slightly before 5.40 pm local time (slightly before 3.40 pm GMT) on Tuesday 12 February 2018. There are no reports of any damage or casualties associated with this event at this time, but people have reported feeling it in North Kivu Province.

Lake Edward lies within the the of the Great Rift Valley, which is slowly splitting the African Plate in two along a line from the Red Sea through Ethiopia, and which includes the great lakes and volcanoes of east-central Africa. This has the potential to open into a new ocean over the next few tens of millions of years, splitting Africa into two new, smaller, continents; Nubia to the west and Somalia to the east.
