"The earthquakes that hit Ismayilli were not very strong. However, they did not pass unnoticed," Gurban Yetirmishli, director of the Republic Seismic Survey Center of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences said in a statement to APA on Tuesday.
He said tremors of this type are typical of Ismayilli.
“A process that’s typical of that zone is taking place right now. Shamakhy-Ismayilli is a lot more active compared to other seismic zones,” he said.
Yetirmishli added, however, that devastating earthquakes are unlikely in Azerbaijan. Ismayilli district has been hit by two earthquakes. The quakes were below magnitude 3.
