Hi there, I know it's late on a Sunday night but I've just heard a rumour that there was an earthquake this morning about 10miles from Rojales.

Does anyone know if this is correct?

Hey there, thanks for your prompt replies.

When my husband called me yesterday morning he said a loud noise had woken him around 6am but he just went back to sleep again.  It was only last night I realised it might have been something more than the cat downstairs!

Thanks again.
