El Hierro earthquake of M 4,7 felt on La Gomera

Yesterday's strong seismic activity in the Atlantic just off the western tip of the island of El Hierro produced more than 150 shocks of which 14 were of magnitude 4 to 4,7 on the Richter scale. Several of the latter were also felt to a small degree on neighbouring Canary Islands including La Gomera.
