GOLDEN RACE ALGARVE ORGANIZATION - INFORMATION SECOND OFFICIAL RACE & ACE PIGEON 2023. - Org AGR hereby informs that it has decided to cancel the second official 2023 race, which was scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday 6th September 2023, and will be held in the next few days. According to information from the Instituto Portugues do mar e da Atmosfera IPMA, there were several earthquakes in the Algarve today and this afternoon in the region of Évora, the release area, there was another earthquake, and according to our experience of more than 30 years in releasing pigeons, Whenever there are earthquakes in the pigeon release areas, or surrounding areas, there are large losses of pigeons, as it is known that earthquakes alter the earth's magnetic field, and the pigeons lose their orientation, which causes immense losses. So we regret if we are wrong, and we take responsibility for what we have just said, because experience tells us that. INFORMATION ON THE IPMA WEBSITE IPMA: 3 earthquakes recorded in the Algarve and one in Évora 09/5/2023 at 18:20 An earthquake with magnitude 2.6 on the Richter scale was recorded today at 3:47 pm in the Évora area, reported the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA). The earthquake, with an epicenter located around eight kilometers west of Évora, was recorded at the Continente Seismic Network stations, IMPA said in a statement. This earthquake, according to the information available from IPMA, until the statement was issued, “did not cause personal or material damage and was felt with maximum intensity IV (modified Mercalli scale) in the municipality of Évora”. “It was also felt with less intensity in the municipality of Montemor-o-Novo (Évora)”, according to the statement, adding that, if the situation warrants it, new statements will be issued. “Locating the epicenter of an earthquake is a complex physical and mathematical process that depends on the data set, algorithms and seismic wave propagation models,” added the institute. According to IPMA, “different agencies may produce slightly different results. Likewise, preliminary determinations are usually corrected later, by integrating more information”. This morning and morning, other earthquakes had been recorded affecting the Algarve. The earthquake was registered at 01:49, with an epicenter located 98 kilometers south-southwest of Faro, IPMA said in a statement. The shock “was felt with maximum intensity III (modified Mercalli scale) in the Albufeira region”, added the institute.
