The earthquakes epicenter was located 4 miles northwest of San Jose Pinula. and had a depth of 200 kilometers. One of the larger earthquakes that took place in the area was in November 2012, where a magnitude 7.4 earthquake killed 42 people in Guatemala.

Seismicity and ground deformation is an on-going story at the El Hierro volcano. A magnitude 5.0 event was felt across the island late yesterday and a magnitude 3.4 was also felt. Another volcano that has experienced earthquakes is the San Cristobal volcano located in Nicaragua.
Many people felt earthquakes, including a magnitude 4.3 event which struck near a volcano this morning. At the Telica volcano seismicity continues to remain high and occasionally grades into sub-continuous volcanic tremor.
Explosions, volcanic earthquakes, and rockfalls continue at a high rate at the Colima volcano in Mexico. Exhalations of gas continue to take place at an average rate of nearly twice an hour at the Popocatepetl volcano.
Explosive activity is also increasing at the Fuego volcano in the past few hours. A strong, continuous volcanic/hydrothermol tremor rumbles within White Island volcano again today.
Thousands Of Dead Fish In The Niagara River
Earlier we reported 10’s of thousands of dead pigs in China, and today we have several other strange mass animal deaths to report. Hundreds of dead fish were found floating belly up lined the shore near the Weightman Bridge in Chippawa.
Along with the Chippawa area, there were reports of dead fish along the shoreline in Fort Erie and as far south as Pennsylvania for weeks.
One of the reasons given for this mass fish death was the cold stress when ice melts in the area, according to spokeswoman Jolanta Kowalski. It is difficult to believe that melting ice can cause fish to die, but we will leave the debate up for discussion.
In China, dead ducks are now reportedly dead in the Nanhe river, located in Pengshan county.
Local residents and livestock are not at risk as the river was not used for drinking water.
Louisiana Homeowner Buyouts
Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says a Texas company blamed for the sinkhole that formed after the collapse of an underground salt cavern has agreed to private settlement offers which include buyouts, to the residents of the Bayou Corne community in the Assumption parish area.
Since the massive sinkhole opened up from the company drilling, 350 residents have been forced to evacuate.
Jindal joined local officials and legislators from Assumption Parish at a meeting with Texas Brine officials on March 13, after which the governor announced the agreement.
Texas Brine is responsible for the sinkhole, and we’ve remained committed to holding them accountable.
“More than 350 lives have been uprooted by the Bayou Corne sinkhole. For months, our administration has been pressuring Texas Brine to step up to the plate and do the right thing for the residents of Bayou Corne. Texas Brine is responsible for the sinkhole, and we’ve remained committed to holding them accountable,” Jindal said in the announcement.www.insurancejournal.com
