Between Sunday night and early Monday morning there were two earthquakes measuring 3.1 and 3.0 degrees north of the Canary Islands. The movement has become more common in recent months although experts from the National Geographic Institute describe this activity as normal and within the parameters between which the Archipelago moves
At 20:28 this Sunday the first of the tremors was happened northwest of Fuerteventura with an intensity of 3.1 degrees. There was a further tremor registered measured at a level of 3 degrees further nort of the islands. Both tremors are considered by the IGN within the usual scales of the islands.
It is worth remembering that, since September 2, on the east coast of Tenerife, more than 10 low intensity earthquakes have been recorded -between 1.5 and 1.6-, although the frequency that was defined several months ago remains seismic. More than 200 miniterremotos have been counted in just 72 hours during the month of May this year.
