The National Geographic Institute (IGN) has registered at 11:19 p.m. this Sunday a 3.8 magnitude earthquake with an epicenter in the municipality of Ossa de Montiel (Albacete), has been felt in some twenty towns in Albacete, Ciudad Real, Toledo, Cuenca and Murcia.

According to information published by the agency dependent on the Ministry of Development on its website consulted by Efe, the earthquake has had a depth of two kilometers.

The earthquake has been noticed with different intensity in towns in the province of Albacete such as Bogarra, Lezuza, El Bonillo, Ossa de Montiel, Albacete capital, Alcaraz, El Ballesteros, Paterna del Madera, Villarrobledo and Yeste.

It has also been felt in towns in the Ciudad Real province such as Bolaños de Calatrava, Socuéllamos, Ruidera, Alcázar de San Juan, Almagro, Campo de Criptana, Ciudad Real, Daimiel, Valdepeñas, Montiel, Pedro Muñoz and Tomelloso.

The earthquake has also been felt by some citizens in Las Mesas, in the province of Cuenca, and in Consuegra, in the province of Toledo.

In the Murcia community, the earthquake has also been noticed in towns such as Moratalla and Cieza.

Some Internet users have recorded the earthquake on social networks, ensuring that in towns such as Valdepeñas, in addition to feeling the tremor, one has also heard a noise.

In other locations they have commented that it has felt very slightly, and at the moment there is no evidence that it has caused any damage.

The shallow depth, only 2 kilometers and the geology of the terrain has facilitated the propagation of the waves, explained the geographer and presenter of the Weather in Castilla-La Mancha Media, Jonathan Gómez Cantero.
