Tremors are very common in Central America as the entire area is riddled with volcanos. In the past few weeks, tremors and earthquakes have been reported along the entire Ring of Fire – which runs literally along the North-South American Pacific Coast and around to the east: Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, etc.
