The following is the last major reported earthquake in Spain according to the USGS:

Spain
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.

Abridged from United States Earthquakes, 1954.

I have an apartment in a town near Alicante where there is a block with the history about a earthquake that killed a lot of people and forced the fishermen to move up to the mountains back in early 1900-1800.

The apartment is on the 4th floor, a new earthquake has been expected.

I hope everyone is safe down there.

Have any "great theatres" in the area been destroyed?

If so, Nostradamus may have been right.

Really? That is interesting. I think USGS is using a default @1Km and EMSC is using a default @10Km.

USGS actually says


Depth 1 km (~0.6 mile) (poorly constrained)


and


dep = 1.0 +/- 4.2


earthquake.usgs.gov...

Basically it means that the depth cannot accurately be determined.

Just gotten off the phone with a contact I know in the Granada area. Says this uplift area isn't volcanic in origin and is a result of tectonic fracking, from the collision of the European/African plate that any Seismologist is aware of.

As we agree'd looking at the hydrology & locality maps on the phone the shallow depth of the quake just co-incidentally placed it upwind of the Sierra de la Almernara, but south of the Town itself. The town being placed alongside the Guadalentin river which itself flows East. This is key as it means the local topography is shallower than the surrounding hillsides around it, so when the quake hit despite the depth being 0.1km it was almost parallel to the town's altitude and with S-Waves rebounding from fracking faultlines as a result of lateral lift eitherside of the town, it meant the S-Waves became amplified moreso than the USGS model programs.

Although we couldn't gauge to what degree due to the lack of substantial damage reports & images coming out don't be too surprised to see this upgraded to a 5.7 or higher in the coming days when investigative analysis gets underway.

UPDATE 19:23 UTC : Repeating that the death toll has been raised to 10. There are numerous injuries, and many people have been evacuated. We are nearing nightfall and are hoping for the trapped to be recovered before nightfall.

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


In Fiji and in New Caledonia yes, and in various other places in the world, but in Spain this is out of the norm.

In the last 2 years earthquakes of 4.5+ amount to just these:


Date/Time UTC,Latitude,Longitude,Magnitude,Depth(Km),Location
2011-05-11 16:47:26, 37.697, -1.555, 5.3, 1.0, Spain
2011-05-11 15:05:12, 37.700, -1.630, 4.5, 10.0, Spain
2010-04-11 22:08:11, 37.048, -3.512, 6.3, 619.7, Spain




Some facts at your fingertips would make your comments more meaningful. It does not mean 'nothing at all'.

But to say that EQ's of this magnitude are unheard of in the area is wrong. EQ's do happen in this area, just not as much as others. As I said before, Spain and Italy are just north of the oceanic convergent boundary which is prone to EQ's.

As silly it may sound... You don't think the bombarding of Uranium bombs on Libya by the NATO allies has anything to do with the inducing of earthquake happening on the african tectonic plate?

don't be too surprised to see this upgraded to a 5.7


I agree. The phase data does indicate it could be higher. It is a 5.5 Ml anyway according to USGS


mb = 5.3 ( 90) ML = 5.5


neic.usgs.gov...

There is even a 6.4 in amongst that lot.

Since the other thread I posted this on is now closed, I'll repost this here to show just how insignificant these two quakes were on the global scale. They are only even mentioned in the media because poor construction practices and old decaying building can't stand up to even moderate shakes and unfortunetly, due to that, people lost their lives. My thoughts are with their families.

Okay, look at the amount of earthquakes that have happend just within the last 10 hours. THIS IS NOT UNUSUAL!!!!! This is NOT some sort of mystic prediction coming true. It just so happens these two quakes were close to a city.

And honestly, by these numbers, you should be worried about a "big one" soon if you're on the east coast of Australia or New Zealand
