Earthquakes Update

I´ve gotten abit behind on my earthquake posts, and apologize. I will try to do better.

Had a busy day - earthquakewise- earlier this week. On the night of the 15th and morning of the 16th we had at least three quakes. The first was at 10:53 p.m. on the 15th. It was a 5.0 with a depth of 39 km. At 12:16 a.m. on the 16th we had a second quake that measured 3.0 with a depth of 12 km. Both of the quakes were due to movement of a local fault. There was another quake around 4:16 a.m. that woke me up, and although the seimographs in several locations registered the tremor, there has been no official reporting of it.

In the first week of December there have been 85 tremors/quakes.

In the month of November there were 469 tremors/quakes.
