St Etienne de Baigorri, 64430, Pyrénées Atlantiq / MMI IV (Light shaking): I live in St Etienne de Baigorri, just on the otherside of the Pyrénées from the locus of this Bertizarana incident. I know the location quite well, Bertiz National Park in Spain. I had a gas heater on and the automatic cutoff tripped when the house shook. I though at first it was a heavy vehicle passing outside, but, the was no vehicle. Stephen. [email protected]
