Earthquake of 3.9 degrees north of Tenerife

imageOn Saturday, April 16th, the National Geographic Institute detected an earthquake of 3.9 magnitude, a hundred miles northeast of La Palma (or, directly north of Tenerife, by to our calculations), according to the Ministry of Development website.

The epicentre of the quake, which was registered at 12:00, was located in the Atlantic Ocean, at latitude and longitude 29.4330 north, -17,145 west. The earthquake was not strong enough to be felt on land.
