    I was having problems keeping up with these quakes. Wow!! And add to this:
    5.8 – 46km SSE of Pujiharjo, Indonesia
    5.9 – 15km SSW of El Rosario, El Salvador
    5.4 – 57km WSW of Amatignak Island, Alaska
    and then there was the 3.5 – 54km S of Fredonia, Arizona that rattled a few people.

    Our planet is definitely rocking.
