An earthquake measuring 2.7 on the Richter scale was felt this morning at around 2:32 a.m. in the southeast of Madeira at a depth of 46 kilometers.

The shock point is located in an area called Rybin Seamount, named after the Russian hydrographer, Arctic and Baltic explorer Georgy Nikolaevich Rybin, and is almost midway across the Atlantic between Madeira, the Canary Islands, and Morocco.

IPMA registered this earthquake as being in the Madeira area, but it is actually more than 300 km away.
