Minutes ago the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a 4.2-magnitude earthquake in Canary Islands, Spain at a depth of 21km. The area is close to the volcano La Palma that erupted two months devasating the island of La Palma. The eruption is ongoing.

Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Mazo, Santa Cruz De La Palma, Fuencaliante De La Palma and Los Llanos se Aridane.
