Couple of small tremors registered in Icod de los Vinos

Volcanologists say that a couple of tremors were registered in Icod today, the first of which, just after 2.30pm, measured 2.1 on the Richter scale at a depth of 9km and was recorded near the Cueva del Viento. The later tremor was just before 3.30pm, of magnitude 1, and with its epicentre some 600m off the coast. Experts say that more can be expected, but that these are all at the low level that is normal for a volcanic island and that they are to be welcomed rather than feared.
