Just yesterday there was a 5+ magnitude earthquake here in Spain (on the south), preceded by a 4+ one. It's not that strong, but maybe because the place and the people wasn't properly prepared for it it caused quite some damage, many injured and arounf 10 deaths
I know this may sound as nothing compared with major tragedies with earthquakes around the world, but we are not used to it and it was quite a shock. The southern part of Spain suffers from soft earthquakes often, but rarely happens something.
Since I live in the center I didn't felt it at all, but still was pretty shocking. So much that I plain didn't believe it at first. I though my mother had missheard some news. Sadly, it was all true.
I heard that some of the most damaged buildings were new ones. You know, the building companies skip this and that because it's cheaper, and then this happens. What the hell were they thinking? :/
I hope everyone there can go back to their homes as soon as possible and that the injured get well soon. A big hug to everyone.
