The date of the earthquake is Monday, January 11, 2022
The time of occurrence and strength of the earthquake: 3:07 am local time with the strength of 6.6 on the Richter scale.

Longitude 31.94 East
Depth: 60 km
It was reported to the Institute that the citizens felt that tremor.
The Egyptian National Earthquake Network works through 70 stations whose locations were carefully selected in light of the seismic history of all of Egypt. It became impossible for any earthquake to occur without recording and monitoring it,
regardless of its strength, even if it was less than zero.
The National Earthquake Network is one of the most modern networks in the world, and Egypt is one of the first countries in the world, North Africa and the Middle East in this field.
Where its history dates back to more than 150 years and Egypt has the largest seismic history in the world dating back to more than 5000 years, although seismic monitoring began at the beginning of the twentieth century, the ancient Egyptian civilization and the history of earthquakes in the history books all date back to more than 5000 years, which is What gives weight and strength to Egypt in monitoring and dealing with such natural phenomena.
