Spain: Earthquake rocks Lorca, Murcia, killing 10

At least 10 people were killed after a magnitude-5.2 earthquake toppled several buildings in southern Spain near the town of Lorca, officials say.

The quake struck at a depth of just 1km (0.6 miles), some 120km south-west of Alicante, at 1847 (1647 GMT), the US Geological Survey reported.

Lines of cars lay crushed under tonnes of rubble and a hospital was evacuated as a precaution.

The quake followed a 4.4-magnitude tremor about two hours earlier.

It is not clear how many people were injured, although Spanish media say there are dozens.

Military deployed...........

Knowing the area fairly well, I'd say it's the old buildings that are mostly the cause of the deaths. Murcia straddles a fault line, and in my youth I played in a lake which I only recently realised was in fact the flooded caldera of a dormant volcano.

 

Interesting factoid: the spain earthquake happened on the day Raffaele Bendandi, an italian geologist who died in 1979, predicted a quake would destroy Rome. The prediction is said to be apocryphical, however, and treated as an urban myth.
