The Nerja tsunami that never arrived

BEACH-GOERS heading for El Playazo in Nerja found their path blocked on Tuesday (November 17) by a Local Police officer ordering them to leave the beach due to a tsunami alert.

The alert, for waves of up to 1.5 metres, was put out based on information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration following an earthquake registering 6.1 on the Richter Scale in Greece earlier in the morning. The forecast was later reduced to waves of just 20 centimetres. 


  1. Excellent that news can be acted on so quickly by the emergency services of so many nations. The fact that it was downgraded later is irrelevant. Well done the local police, for listening, acting, and getting an officer there to protect the public’s safety
