People run into streets as Granada province reports further earthquakes

Written by on January 27, 2021

A series of earthquakes have rocked parts of the Granada province with over 40 tremors recorded in the area over the last 24 hours.

The quakes – of between magnitude 2 to 4.5 brought some people out into the streets after people were concerned over possible building damage. Three of the quakes were over 4 on the Richter scale.

Whilst seismologists at the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics have said that the quakes are part of a normal cluster, they have not ruled out ongoing seismic events over the coming months.

Reports of minor structural damage have been recorded, with officials at the Torre de las Gallinas de la Alhambra castle reporting minor damage to one of the battlements, which has been closed for repairs to be carried out.
