    Looks like a deep one, which should mitigate the damage. Granada is a cultural treasure. Reports from surrounding cities suggest the quake was lightly felt.

    This year I heard from astrologists that we will have lots of natural disasters...2011 onwards we should be good...hopefully.

    Seriously CNN, is there a need now to report EVERY earthquake around the world, as if these things are not normal. It generates serious concern for people and create unnecessary anxiety.

    This is not normal people. I've never heard of so many earthquakes happening with this kind of magnitude so frequently.

    let's hear again from scientists that's this is completely "normal"...another 6.8 quake hit today as well in the Pacific ocean I believe.

    Why is the media reporting about every earth quake on earth now? Could you just post the earthquake website and get it done with? Is this EARTHQUAKE week?

      The earth is being cleansed, there is no need to fear. If you would like to know the future research people that have died and gone to heaven and experienced what is called a NDE. They have seen these things are to come to pass for the last three decades now , my friend. They even predicited years ago that men would rise up who would claim "global warming" and make milions of dollars on lies. These are neccisary events to change the world, God and his angels are changing it. All who pass in the times of what is called the great gathering will pass to a higher level, were their creator eagerly awaits them. Those left on earth will also be raised to a higher level of christ conciousness. To survive the upcoming changes please have a food storage ready. Love and blessings to you and your family. Barb

    There are some of us that like to know what is happening in the world outside of our own backyard.

    This increase in earthquake activity is something to think about. There are always a lot of earthquakes...but the intensitiy and frequency is getting increased from what one would consider "normal" activity. I think this is prophecy coming true....that would explain it..

    Ever since the Easter Earthquake on April 4th, there seems to be A LOT of seismic energy this past week. I believe that the Easter Earthquake has loosened some faults here in the Southern California and maybe relieved some pressure, but with the amount of earthquakes we have been getting, I believe we need to get Earthquake kits ready now. We can see it (usgs.com) and feel it (personal experiences) happening. With all these earthquakes going on in Southern California and Northern Mexico, the fault lines are ready to release it's massive energy that has been building for quite some time.
    Thank you to those who have read this message and to those who have posted and commented.

    Jesus did say that there would be great earthquakes and tossing and turning of the sea and these will increase like birthpangs of a woman in labor. Please ask the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to the second coming of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ. Accept what the Lord has done for us by dying on the cross for our sins and paying the penalty for our iniquities. Put your faith in the one who truly loves you!!!

    Deno is correct! This is Biblical prophecy coming to pass! Watch Israel for the soon coming Psalm 83 War and know that the return of the Jesus Christ for His own is close, even at the door!

    These earthquakes "in divers places: will continue to just as Jesus told us to watch for in Matthew 24:7
    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

    I would like to read more soon. By the way, pretty nice design you have here, but don’t you think design should be changed once in a few months?
