Early this morning (02:00) we had earth tremors that were reported as 4.2 on the Richter scale, sounding like distant thunder, people at the bar in the square, said they could see the buildings shaking and the seats they were sitting on felt like they were on air, we were asleep and the airbed cushioned the vibrations although it was a wierd feeling. Mary slept through it. There was reported to be 4 separate tremors, with the epicentre near Formentera del Segura, but felt throughout a large area.
Some holidaymakers decided to sleep outside following the event.
