The magnitude of the quakes were 4.8, 4.8, 3.2, 5.0, 3.0, 3.7, 3.5 and 3.6. More quakes are occuring in the region as we speak.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Alot of people are reporting the tremors of the quakes. More details to follow.
