We've had some strong quakes all around the globe on Boxing Day again! Remember that both the earthquake that hit Bam, Iran , 2003 was on Boxing day and exactly one year later, December 26, 2004 a magnitude 9.0, the strongest earthquake in 40 years, went off in the Indian Ocean off the western coast of Sumatra.

Residents in a Scottish town reported their houses shaking violently and windows rattling yesterday after the most powerful earthquake in Britain this year was recorded in Dumfries.

Another small earthquake hits Bay Area

The San Francisco Bay Area was nudged Monday morning by its fourth small earthquake in six days, but no injuries or major damage were reported.

Monday's quake, at magnitude 2.6, was the smallest in a recent series of temblors occurring along the Hayward fault, which runs underneath the east side of San Francisco Bay. Last week a pair of magnitude 3.7 quakes and a magnitude 3.5 temblor struck.
