A 3.1 magnitude earthquake shakes Granada capital

Another earthquake has shaken Granada, the second in a week, as residents felt the 3.1 magnitude rumble at 9:37am on Sunday, December 6. Last Wednesday, December 2, Santa Fe residents were alarmed by another quake, measuring 3.5 on the Richter scale.

The National Geographic Institute reported that Sunday’s quake’s epicentre was in the west of the municipality of Atarfe, at a depth of one kilometre.

The earthquake was felt by many residents in the municipalities near the epicentre of the earthquake, who took to social media to express their alarm.

 

Experts say the rumble corresponds to the normal activity of the area, in which micro-earthquakes are frequent.
