Don’t worry if you hear about a 3.1 earthquake in Tenerife last night


I’m posting for rumour-stopping rather than reporting, so if anyone should hear about an earthquake in Tenerife last night, yes, there was one, and yes, it was 3.1 on the Ritcher scale, but it wasn’t even felt in Tenerife because it was 59 kilometres deep and out to see off north east Tenerife. It’s in all the papers, so I thought the potential for rumourmongering was quite large …

The seismological details are HERE.


  1. LOL! Was that the same one tv just said was off coast of Lanzarote?
