As reported by Emergencies 112 Andalusia, a service attached to the Ministry of the Presidency, Interior, Social Dialogue and Administrative Simplification of the Board, it was recorded at 1:34 a.m. in the southwest of Carboneras and with a depth of three kilometers.

Faced with this situation, and as it was felt by the public, the 112 Emergency Telephone number has attended several calls throughout the night alerted by the movement, without any of them reporting any outstanding incidents.

In addition, in round with the emergency operations in the area, the perception of the earthquake by the population has been confirmed.

From Emergencies 112 Andalusia it has been recommended that once the earthquake is over, an evacuation is carried out and that in the case of being inside a house or office it is necessary to gather all the cohabitants and go outside, always using the stairs and with the prohibited use of the elevator.
