3 earthquakes close to western Tenerife (Canary Islands)
The earthquakes epicenter was close to La Laguna. An ER reader specidied that the shaking of the mainshock lasted for about 5 seconds. The shaking was weakened somewhat because of the double effect of the depth (more than 20 km deep) and the location of the epicenter (below the sea bed)

  • La Laguna - Very short time, about 5 seconds
  • Puerto de la Cruz - Moderate shaking indicated
  • La Matanza de Acentejo, Tenerife - Well I was up working and felt this relatively strong tremor. The house fittings all shook, along with the computer monitor I was directly looking at and the two desk lamps. Even though it was close to 3:00am, some people got up from their beds to check out what had happened...
  • La Matanza de Acentejo, Tenerife - Sorry, this was the one I felt as I was awake at the time, followed by the last one 4 minutes later. La Matanza is quite close to the epicentre...
  • Puerto de la Cruz de Tenerife - I was watching TV when the whole building started to shake significantly. I am on the 11th floor, the hight probably amplified it.
  • La Orotava - A nice wake up call while ending my midnight movie..
  • Puerto de la Cruz - Woke to feel bed shaking, after shock about 3 mins later also shook bed. 1 loose tile dislodged from roof. Felt in Puerto de la Cruz - about 20 Km from epicentre
  • Puerto de la Cruz - Scary!
  • Puerto de la Cruz - My first earthquake. I got a fright whe the floor started to move and bottles on dresser jumped around but I quickly realised it was not strong and no sigificant damage (except lift in the hotel is now a bit dodgy).

    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
