Terremotos

placas-tectonicasToday I felt my first earthquake tremor. Even though I was pretty sure that’s what it was, it made my heart pound.

One week ago, around 5:30am, there was a six-point something earthquake under the Alboran Sea, right between Spain and Morocco. Some buildings in Morocco and along the Spanish coast experienced cracks and other light damage. Today, there were smaller earthquakes in the same area, including the one I felt around 5:30pm that registered 4.5 on the Richter scale.

The locals I’ve talked to say there are small earthquakes every few years, and that new buildings are constructed to withstand tremors.
