The National Geographic Institute (IGN) reports a 3.5 magnitude earthquake which occurred this Friday at a depth of 2 kilometres with an epicentre in the municipality of Puerto Lumbreras, between this town and Águilas. The tremor, which was recorded at 09:15h, was initially located by the IGN in the municipality of Águilas, at a depth of 7 kilometres, on the border with the province of Almería, although the information was subsequently corrected.

The seismic movement was felt intensely in Águilas and also in areas of Lorca, Puerto Lumbreras, Totana, Cartagena and in some parts of Almería. 112 has received a dozen calls from the municipalities of Águilas, Lorca and Puerto Lumbreras, none of them requesting assistance, and the Carlos V school in Águilas has evacuated the students as a precaution. No news of any damage

The mayoress of Águilas, Mª Carmen Moreno, said that the earthquake “was quite noticeable, it was like a small explosion, especially for those who were on the upper floors. Moreno stressed that “there have been no incidents” and that several schools have decided to take the students to the playground as a precaution, although the students returned to the classrooms minutes later.

Initially, the National Geographic Institute indicated on its Twitter account that the earthquake had a magnitude of 5.4 with an epicentre in the town of Turrillas in Almería.
