LAST Saturday morning, inhabitants of the Valle del Almanzora were awakened by a 3.4 earthquake.
According to the provincial Spanish media many resident looking forward to a weekend lie-in noticed “strong tremors” that made “everything in the house shake” in Arboleas, Albox, Zurgena and Cantoria.
Although relatively mild, the 3.4 earthquake, whose epicentre was in Limaria (Arboleas), made itself felt as it was only five kilometres beneath the surface, Spain’s National Geographic Institute explained.
