Hmm,so thats what it was,...I put it down to too many gabanzas and a bellyfull of Spanish beer.

To be serious,thats pretty darn close to Granada,wonder if there's any reports of damage or maybe it was too deep?

Apparently it was about 600km down so that explains why it was not so significant on the surface.

Wow - a little too close to home!!!

Our nearest town had a devastating earthquake on Christmas Day in 1884 which killed 58 people

We quite often feel tremors - one, a couple of years ago, caused some cracks around our swimming pool!!

Still - I didn't feel this one as I'm back in the UK for a couple of weeks

So if your house has collapsed while you are away, does normal insurance cover earthquakes here,or are they classed as Acts of God or whatever in Spain?

Strange expression that,... Acts of God,...thought he was only supposed to do good things,...or does he punish naughty ppl. before they reach the pearly gates?...
