Alaska

There have already been about 3,000 Alaska earthquakes this month. A series of significant May earthquakes and their aftershocks are being examined by seismologists, who say Alaska is markedly above its usual rate of earthquakes for the month. With the aftershocks, close to the monthly average have been recorded in just the first 10 days. The catalog of May temblors as of Wednesday included at least three larger than a 6, seven larger than a 5 and 50 larger than a 4 on the Richter scale, according to an overview compiled by the earthquake centre.
