The earthquake that occurred in Madeira yesterday caused the closure of at least three road sections in the Region, the Civil Protection informed.

Thus, the ER 101, between Ponta Delgada and Fajã da Areia, is closed to traffic; the ER222, in Ribeira Brava, above the municipal cemetery; and the ER 102, 500 meters above Terreiro da Luta.
