The USGS said the quake was located about six miles underground and shook Nairobi and the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa. It was also felt on the shores of Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake, and in Tanzanian towns bordering Zambia and Malawi, Tanzania's meteorological chief Mohamed Mhita said by phone from the commercial capital of Dar es Salaam. ...

The region is located along the Great Rift Valley, which runs for 3,000 miles between Syria and Mozambique. In January 2002, a volcano erupted along the fault in eastern Congo, forcing some 300,000 people to flee and destroying the homes of 120,000. An estimated 100 people were killed.
