5.3 2011/05/11 16:47:26 37.697 -1.556 1.0 SPAIN

Although in the grand scheme of things this earthquake would be categorized as relatively small, it seems quite ironic that this hit today. The Romans have been dreading this day for the past 3 decades, it's predicted as the day a massive earthquake will level the centuries old city. The fear was caused by one faction of the followers of Raffaele Bendandi, who died more than 30 years ago.

The self-proclaimed scientist, who used a mix of seismology and cosmology and claimed to have forecast numerous earthquakes, calculated that a "big one" would hit Rome on May 11, 2011.

Article


Well, so much for the Eternal city. On Wednesday, Rome will be razed to the ground by an earthquake that will shatter more than 2,000 years' worth of monumental architecture including the Colosseum, the Pantheon and St Peter's.

That, at least, is the fear of hundreds of thousands of Romans, spooked by the reputed forecast of a self-taught seismologist who died more than 30 years ago. The daily La Repubblica reported that applications from the capital's public employees for a day off – and, presumably, out – were 18% higher than for the same day in 2011. Education officials were said to be expecting school attendances to be down by a fifth as parents decide it is better to be on the safe side.


The proximity of todays 5.1 is certainly an eye opener. At a distance of less than 1500kms from Rome and at a depth of only 1KM the prediction "almost" appears plausible.

*NOTE- The last reported major earthquake in Spain follows:

1954 March 29 UTC
Magnitude 7.9

Near the south of Spain.

This earthquake caused property damage at Malaga. Felt at Madrid, Granada and Cadiz, Spain; Tangier, Spanish Morocco, and Casablanca, French Morocco. The depth was 640 kilometers.

He was off bye two days last time so I dunno maybe were gonna have to give him a +/- 2 days on this one LoL sorry not funny cause if it happens the chance of injury is high. But yeah when i saw the usgs showing a 5.3 for spain definantly got my mind running in that direction plus the small ones around etna. The bubble before the bulge....

I am surprised, that part of Spain is not known to be so seismic. The map on the USGS with the seismic history makes this quake one of the biggest, as far as I can see:

Hopefully it's not going to trigger Italy's fault lines

This is intriguing. The positioning and the timing.

The Euro-Mediterranean Seismic Center gives the depth at 10 Km: EMSC

I give more credit to the EMSC, being closer to the epicentre

i learned that quakes in Spain can only be created on the "Pyrénées"(mountains between France and Spain)...but in the South.....

Agreed. It is quite an eye opener. At least one person has died. Source

Haarp is lit up like a beacon, too. Linky

Updated: at least four have died.


At least four people have died this afternoon in Lorca (Murcia), following a 5.2-magnitude quake, which was preceded by an earthquake of 4.1. The epicenter was located in the Sierra de Tercia of the town of Murcia. The earthquake was located between five and 10 kilometers northeast of the town, near the highway from Murcia, and felt in several towns in the region, Murcia, Mazarron, Cartagena and Aguilas, and has even made sense in other provinces such as Almeria and Albacete.

The tunnel of the A-7 in the direction of Andalusia has collapsed vehicles. The DGT has called for drivers who are not diverted to the area. In Lorca, there were at least two landslides in two buildings on Calle Galicia and the neighborhood area of ​​Vine and damage to many buildings throughout the municipality. There is one death in the neighborhood of San Cristobal.

Actually this statement is not true, almost all the manuscripts and papers of Bendandi got burned. On one of the remains there were two dates, 2011 and 2012. Thats'all. No May and no eleven.

I can't remember the place now exactly, but in NW Africa there is a volcano that has people worried that if it erupts and a big chunk falls off of it that the resulting tsunami would devastate the eastern United States. Anyone know what I am talking about?

I live in spain, but not near that area.
Its all on the news, they talk of 3 deaths.
many houses were shaking and parts of them collapsed.
This is big for spain, people are scared, chaos everywhere.
The quake was felt as far as Valencia, is like 250km from the epicentro.
Will check what happens next, hoping they are not just forechocks.
The last big one was in 1884 with a mag of 6.5 this happened also in the south, granada.
We have normally every 70 years a big earthquake.
The south of spain is a more risk area for quakes.
Some months ago i heard on the news that a big earthquake can happen everyday now, because that 70 years are passed a long time ago.
The biggest recorded was a 6.9 Allicante(southern spain)

There was also a 5.3 in New Caledonia, and a 5.1 in Fiji. This means nothing. Happens every day.

I know it's stretching it a lot, but if this earthquake is a precursor to the "big one", the one might wake up the volcano at La Palma.
