Earthquake Hazard level: Medium. In the area you have selected (United Republic of Tanzania) earthquake hazard is classified as medium according to the information that is currently available.

This means that there is a 10% chance Seismicity in Tanzania book potentially-damaging earthquake shaking in your project area in the next 50   Tanzania lies between the two branches of the East African Rift valley system, which is seismically very active and has experiences earthquake from small to large size magnitudes as shown in figure 1 below.
