EARTHQUAKE IN NERJA MALAGA

PREVIOUS / NEXT

NERJA by KRISS on 25 january 2016

EARTHQUAKE IN NERJA MALAGA I was sleeping soundly this morning, dreaming about some strong winds and as I pointed out to Kate the wind really was strong I woke up and realized it was actually an earthquake and quite a strong one, having everything shake for 10 to 15 seconds.
It was 5.20 am and it was recorded at 6.5 magnitude in Al Hoceima about 200km south of Nerja near the Moroccan coast.
A few earthquakes of smaller amplitude and which only lasted for a few seconds followed to totalize a number of 6 in the area before 8 am.

At home I was the first one to wake up and woke up Kate who was sleeping and told me to leave her alone because she didn’t mind the shaking and found it soothing.
Amy also woke up, apparently her room was the one where things really moved and when she came to check out if we had experienced a earthquake, it was with great excitement and amusement.
Why not ? Tom and Rose remained in their bed and told us a couple of hours later about the earthquakes but they were too tired to get out of bed.

Guys, seriously, was I the only one already set out to get anyone far from the windows under a table ? Maybe our neighbor also worried because we clearly heard her screaming and panicking when the first shock happened.

This part of the world as a very active seismic activity and it is the first time I for us all experiencing such a shake for that long.
It probably is nothing and there were absolutely no damages but it is still very surprising ! I was expecting a few more waves as a consequence this morning but there were in fact none.
Anyways the water is a freezing 15°C right now and I have no wetsuit handy and still looking for a water housing so I wouldn’t have done much of it !

At school everyone seemed to be talking about the event, I even dared joining a conversation with my poor Spanish ! Well, at least that gives me my morning post after my morning shake.
Have a good day !
