Earthquakes today have once again encircled the Pacific Ring of Fire, where most of the World’s seismic activity takes place.

Commonly the recipient of the strongest quakes, today’s activity has mainly been in the low to medium range with few major repercussions.

Most of the strongest took place in Asia, where Indonesia and the Solomon Islands were once again under threat from magnitude-5 tremors.

Smaller tremors arrived on Alaska in high numbers, however, and struck shallow.

Alaska has been under the thumb of some major earthquake clusters, particularly today.

Residents of the far-flung US state will have felt a total of 22 earthquakes starting this morning.

The strength of each measures from a tiny magnitude 2.5 to a medium-strength magnitude 4.0.

This magnitude 4.0 event has come with some minor risks to nearby people and structures according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
