He explained that five tremors were the repercussions of a 4.1- magnitude earthquake that had hit Room's fault, affecting Iqlim al-Kharroub, Iqlim al-Tuffah and Beiteddine in Mount Lebanon.Lebanon is criss-crossed by numerous fault lines, and the last major earthquake is estimated to have killed 40,000 people in 1759 .
