Earthquake swarm strikes El Salvador

More than 700 slight to moderate earthquakes hit eastern El Salvador in a 24-hour period, damaging dozens of homes but hurting no one.

The quakes, which started Thursday and ranged from 1.8 to 4.6 in magnitude, occurred in the municipality of El Carmen, some 163 km (101 miles) east of the capital of San Salvador, the country’s National Territory agency said.

Jorge Melendez, in charge of civil protection, said on Friday that 80 homes were damaged by the tremors.
