Latest El Hierro Earthquake 5.1 On Richter Scale

December 28, 2013

A 5.1 level earthquake centred in the Last Frontera region of the island of El Hierro was felt in all 4 Western islands yesterday afternoon.

No one was injured, although there were several road closures due to rockfalls.

This is the largest quake felt in the islands since the El Heirro “rumblings” began in 2011, but experts are reporting that there are no indications  of any further undersea volcanic activity.
