3.2 degree earthquake off the coast of Fasnia in Tenerife
The National Geographic Institute (IGN) have reported that they registered an earthquake of 3.2 on the Richter Scale at 1:06pm yesterday afternoon (Thursday) off the coast of the municipality of Fasnia on the east coast of Tenerife.
The tremor, which took place in the sea, was recorded at a depth of 31 kilometres, according to IGN data, and wasn’t felt by the population in the area.
Just a few days ago, the Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) recorded more than 60 low-magnitude earthquakes in the Cumbre Vieja volcano, on the island of La Palma.
According to Involcan, this new seismic swarm did not represent a danger for residents or visitors of La Palma given the small magnitude and depth of the quakes.
