Al-Marj in eastern Libya has witnessed four earthquakes since mid-February, and they were felt by the city’s residents, but the strongest of them occurred last Friday at 10:30 am, according to the local Al-Marj radio, which called on the Government of National Unity to form an emergency room in the city to take the necessary actions to face any possible emergency.

A 4 magnitude earthquake occurred on February 06 off the coast of Derna, and it was not felt by the city's residents. The quake came after the 7.6 magnitude earthquake that struck the regions of southern Turkey and northern Syria.
