Earthquakes Marbella to fuengirola

Post by Liaven » Wed Jan 16, 2019 3:35 pm

Hello! I just found this forum and was wondering if you all could give me your thoughts about the earthquakes I’m hearing people I know here in Norway fear..

My misses and I are looking into moving down in that area in about 3 years, as we’re then debt free and kids are grown by then.

So for now we’re planning on traveling and staying different locations in that time period.

Now back to the question, he he sorry
Should we take anything into consideration regarding earthquakes and you who live there, is it something you think about often?.

I’d be very appreciative for any information on the subject!

Thank you kindly in advance. And sorry for my English. Hope it’s understandable 😅

Hello Liaven!
Don't worry I can understand perfectly your question.

I have never been worried about earthquakes here. Telling the true I can only think of one or two times I could feel one earthquake a little, and just because I was living on a tenth floor. The feeling was very light and objects didn't move at all.

The last big earthquake in the peninsule was in 1755 and focused in Lisbon. There is a tectonic joint between the peninsule and Africa continent, but moving very slowly, 2 mm a year I read. It would require many centuries for a big earthquake like that one.

In Andalucia the activity when present is more felt on the eastern, like Granada, Almeria and east of Malaga. The earthquake origin was always very far from the coast into the sea.

My opinion is that we do not have to worry, I don't even think our children will have to worry...further than that, let them find out :-) I'm not a geologist, I can only say it's not something I care about.

You are welcome!
I'm happy to contribute to your peace of mind on the subject :D

About the issue with the account is because I have to manually approve the forum posts of newcomers; If not this would be full of spam.

Now that you have an account, do not hesitate in asking anything else you wonder about. Would be also nice to hear about your experience moving to Malaga!

Kind regards from the sunny Malaga! ;)
