An earthquake was felt in central Israel, including Jerusalem, Wednesday night.

No injuries or damage has been reported in the wake of the 4.6 magnitude quake.

The Geophysical Institute reported that the epicenter of the earthquake was at sea, between Hadera and Haifa, about 200 kilometers (125 miles) from the Israeli coast. The quake struck Israel at 7:53 PM.

David Bulka, a resident of Mevasseret Zion, told Arutz Sheva: "Our porch shook. I felt dizzy for ten seconds. It was very strong and surprising."

The last time there was an earthquake in Israel was in January of this year. At that time, a 3.6 magnitude tremor was felt in the north of the country.
