article imageStrong 6.2 magnitude earthquake rocks Spain

By Andrew Moran     Apr 11, 2010 in World
Madrid - A strong 6.2 magnitude earthquake rocked the European nation of Spain but there have been no immediate reports of injuries, deaths or significant damages.
On Sunday, a powerful 6.2 magnitude earthquake rocked the Western European nation of Spain, according to the United States Geological Survey. There have been no immediate reports of fatalities, deaths or significant damages.
The depth of the earthquake was measured at 383.2 miles and was located 15 miles southeast of Granada and only 230 miles south of Madrid.
It is expected that the earthquake will not cause any damage because when an earthquake is as deep as Sunday’s the seismic energy is absorbed by the Earth.
This is the second 6.0+ magnitude earthquake to occur on Sunday. Solomon Islands was hit by a strong 6.8 magnitude earthquake.
