They register a 4.4 earthquake, the largest in the volcanic crisis

The National Geographic Institute (IGN) has located a 4.4 magnitude earthquake in Mazo, at a depth of 36 kilometers, in which up to now it has been the largest of those registered since the beginning of the seismic swarm that preceded the eruption of the La Palma volcano.

The IGN places the intensity of this earthquake between III and IV on a scale from I to XII, in the range between weak and widely observed.

Those of level IV do not cause damage but cause the rattle of glass, the oscillation of hanging elements and in some cases the ostensible shaking of furniture.

This earthquake, which the IGN registered at 3:33 p.m. local time, was felt with greater or lesser intensity in practically the entire island of La Palma.

The previous one of greater magnitude, 4.3, was also located in Mazo, 35 kilometers deep, six days ago.
