Earth Tremor Felt in Nigüelas

GRA Niguelas Earth TremorThe good folk of Nigüelas were a bit ruffled last night after an earth tremor that registered 3.9 on the Richter Scale.

The seismic movement took place at 01.16h, according to the Instituto Geográfico Nacional, and it was not long after that 112 started to receive calls; around 20 because the tremor was felt in several other towns and villages.

But these seismic movements are constant – there was one in the north of Portugal at 07.20h this morning, too, but of a lesser intensity (2.4). In fact, the majority have a good rattle and aren’t even noticed, which is a bit disappointing if you’re an earth tremor, admittedly.
