Wanted: Long Term Rental or Anti-Squat / Housesit

You can’t put a price on peace of mind!

SPAIN

Second 5.0 earthquake this weekend in La Palma, Tenerife and La Gomera: The volcanic surveillance network has registered Sunday, on the island of La Palma, a second earthquake of magnitude 5.0 (mbLg), so for the second time in just 24 hours it once again reaches the ceiling of the magnitude of the entire seismic series that began on September 11.
The earthquake occurred at 5:52 p.m. to the southwest of the municipality of Villa de Mazo, 38 kilometers deep and was felt with intensity IV on the EMS scale in numerous centers not only on the island of La Palma, but also on Tenerife and La Slingshot.

EUROPE

Russian gas pipeline starts flowing BACKWARDS taking fuel out of Germany as Biden warns Putin not to use resources as a weapon – while troop movements near Ukraine alarm intelligence officials:
Fuel supplies in the Yamal – Europe pipeline which goes from Russia to Germany via Poland had come to halt on Saturday, with the direction of gas actually reversing.
The supply drop comes amid an explosion in gas prices across Europe, and accusations that the Kremlin is restricting gas supplies for political purposes.
There are also suggestions Russia is pushing the EU to approve a controversial new pipeline, Nordstream 2, that would bring gas from Russia directly to Germany, bypassing Eastern Europe.
But energy firm Gazprom played down concerns saying that all European orders were being fulfilled.
One Russian news media report even suggested the flow reversal was a short-term problem caused by balmy weather in Germany over the weekend. Full article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10147369/Russian-westbound-gas-supply-Yamal-Europe-pipeline-comes-halt.html
