An earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale struck just off the coast of the Costa Del Sol this morning. The tremor was felt at 8.27am, with the epicentre registering at a depth of 87 feet just off the coast near Benalmadena.

The quake comes less than 24 hours after a tremor shook Sevilla and Malaga.


Local resident June Morris lives in Benalmadena.  She said “My husband and I were just getting out of bed when we felt the shake and heard a loud rumbling noise.  It only lasted for 2 seconds at the most, and nothing was damaged.  It was a strange experience though”.
