TEL AVIV — Two small earthquakes struck the Red Sea area, shaking the Israeli coastal town of Eilat on the Gulf of Aqaba but causing no damage, a spokesman for Israel's seismological station said.

The first tremor, which registered 4.5 on the Richter scale, hit Tuesday evening. It was followed almost three hours later by a second quake that registered 5 on the Richter scale.
