Quake Map of Middle East
Cairo and the Egyptian seaport city of Suez were jolted by two unusually strong earthquakes within a five-day period.

The Egyptian seismology research center said the first quake registered a magnitude of 4.2 about 18 miles northwest of Suez.

A 4.7 magnitude tremor later struck beneath the Red Sea, about 18 miles to the south of the port.

No damage was reported from either tremor.

Another quake jolted the same area on July 5.
