He noted that depending on the activity of the zones, 16-20, 30-40 small tremors occur in Azerbaijan during the day: “There are earthquakes both are felt and not felt. Feeling an earthquake depends on its depth. More than 20 tremors have occurred today. These are weak tremors. They have been recorded by devices.”
“These earthquakes occurred in Azerbaijan are within the blocks, the blocks are broken, as a result of their movement, this event occurs.
