I noticed on my recent stay in Lisbon the guide talking about a big earthquake during 1755 but I haven’t heard anything recently. Does it still earthquakes. I don’t know if these things go away or maybe that one was a fluke.
Yup. I’ve felt two small earthquakes in the past two years that I have lived in Lisbon. In January 2018, there was a 4.9 in the Alentejo area and some say a bad one may happen again any time, but the way I look at it, every country and city has a risk of something. In NYC we had Huricane Sandy, in Chile there was the Earthquake Tsunami in 2015, Stuff happens everywhere and can happen at any time. Just keep an ear open to earthquake warning systems & have an escape plan – regardless of where you are.
