THE Andalucian government is making emergency earthquake plans as the risk of incidents has increased.
It has formed a committee which includes emergency and security services to initiate evacuation and recovery procedures, after the National Seismic Institution increased the risk level in Malaga and a large area of Antequera.
The risk is not thought to be imminent, but nobody will say why the risk level has been increased.
The last significant earthquake in the region was recorded in 1884.
Ruiz Espejo, an expert, said on average there should be an incident of magnitude between every 87 and 117 years.
