The World continues to be pounded by swarms of earthquakes. Asia and the South Pacific have been hit by numerous large earthquakes over the past 12 hours. The magnitude of the quakes range from a 3.5 to 6.
The Middle East also have been hit with earthquake swarms over the past 12 hours. They range in size from 1.8 to 4.4 in magnitude.

The Americas have been struck by swarms of earthquakes over the past 12 hours. Alaska, California, and Chile earthquakes up to 4.8 in magnitude.
