Earthquake Recorded off Porto Santo

Two minor earthquakes have been recorded over the past couple of days, says the Portuguese Institute of Atmosphere and Sea. The first registering 1.6 on the Richter scale was logged at 11:30 am northwest of Porto Moniz on the 30th of November. While a second, slightly stronger tremor measuring 2.7 was registered at 05:40 am on the 1st of December, off Porto Santo Island.

Due to their weakness, neither tremors would have been felt.
