seism have taken place. The first in Algeria in the region of Boumrdes on May 21st 2003,

6.8 of magnitude on the Richter scale has been registered. The second in North east

morocco, on February 24th 2004. the magnitude was about 6.5 on the Richter scale. Both

countries have para seismic regulations; The APR 2003 regulations for Algeria and the
