There were two earth tremors last night in the Alhama de Granada area of the province.
The first one, which was the bigger one, registered 3.6 on the richter scale and took place at 22.51h yesterday. It was felt in the following municipalities: Alhama de Granada, Arenas del Rey, Fornes, Arenas Del Rey, Torre Del Mar, Vélez-Málaga, Vélez-Málaga, El Morche, Torrox, and to a lesser degree in Almuñécar, La Herradura, Motril, Frigiliana, Maro and Nerja.
The second, a sort of after shock, took place at 00.50h early this morning registering only 1.6 on the richter scale.
Although the Instituto Geográfico Nacional did give a depth for the seismic movement for this second minor shock (nine kilometres) they received no information of people having felt the tremor.
