Madrid (CNN) — Seven people were killed Wednesday when an earthquake struck southeastern Spain, the central government’s chief representative in the region told National Spanish Radio.

That is about 350 kilometers (218 miles) south-southeast of Madrid. It was preceded at 3:05 p.m. by a 4.5-magnitude temblor centered in the same area, the survey said.
