Earthquake today

Sitting at the computer this morning at 10.25 and everything vibrated for 3 or 4 seconds, it appears it was a 3.1 magnitude earthquake with the epicentre 3.5 kms off Torrelamata the depth was 15 kms, we are about 8 kms from Torrelamata but friends felt the movement in Rojales.
Torrevieja originated from Torrelamata, Torrelamata was just a small fishing village where the Tabarca island fishermen would land their catch then on 21st March 1829 an earthquake devastated the area and Torrevieja was rebuilt where it is now.
