"Preparation for Lag Baomer - 5780"

17 Iyyar 5780
Day 32 of the Omer

In the general area of Meron?  On the eve of L"G Ba'Omer?  It should be a sign for Tov on this Tov day of Iyyar.

...The Geophysical Institute said the first earthquake, which occurred at 5:38am, measured 3.2 in magnitude and its epicenter was some 14 km (8.6 miles) north of Beit She'an in the north.
Beit She'an has a unique geographical setting due to being located at the junction of the Jordan River Valley and the Jezreel Valley.

The second tremblor took place around 6:53 am and measured 2.7 in magnitude. Its exact epicenter is said to have been some 54km (33 miles) north of Nahariya the northernmost coastal city in Israel.
