Thank you all for contributing to this thread.
Since I posted the information about this quake, although not mentioned openly by the authorities, things are getting serious. Just have a look to the
list of quakes registered by the IGN and you will notice what I say.
Scientists and authorities have been telling people all this time not to worry because the earthquakes were too deep, meaning that magma was not

As to the 4.3 quake, they have informed that a small landslide took place on the road from Tacarón to La Restinga, but that they have cleared it by
I assume that it is very difficult to decide what to do under these circumstances. Many people depend on their action and quakes have not been
stronger than 4.3, but I wonder if they are waiting for something "big" to start a real evacuation...
What would you do?
