The earth keeps shaking!

After the 7.1 magnitude that struck Alaska yesterday, the Mediterranean Sea between Spain and Morocco got hit with a 6.3 mag.

A pre-dawn earthquake sent people running into the streets and caused damage to buildings in Spain's north African enclave of Melilla on Monday.

The US Geological Survey said the quake measured 6.3 on the Richter scale and had its epicentre in the Mediterranean Sea about 48 miles (77km) north-west of Melilla, a small Spanish city surrounded by Morocco and the sea.

The quake struck at 5.22am local time (0422 GMT) and had several aftershocks.

Reports of damage and wounded are coming in from Spain.

A part from the wounded and damage that has been done, on a positive note colleges in the area has been suspended.

I will also add a link to another comment made yesterday on the Alaskan EQ

Could this have something to do with the January-February 2015 planetary alignment?

Last time there was such an alignment was 2005, when the 8.7 Sumatra earthquake happened.
Back then there was the alignment, Venus-Sun-Mercury-Earth-Moon-Jupiter crossed with Saturn-Earth and possibly in almost near alignment with actual location of the Galactic Center.

For those who are following SO, this isn't such of a surprise anymore, +1 for Ben again.

So is this just another coincidence, is there more to follow? Stay alert and safe people, especially those in areas prone to earthquakes!
