RSOE Alert: 5.4 Canary Island Earthquake


RSOE EDIS Event Report - A large earthquake of estimated magnitude 5.4 (USGS) occurred just minutes ago. USGS and EMSC place the quake at about 30 km NW of El Golfo at 22.8 km and 10 km depth,respectively, i.e. relatively far away from the area of the recent earthquake swarm and current inflation. However, these preliminary calculation might be updated in the coming hours, which will help understanding whether it is related to the current volcanic crisis on the island.
