In the past few days, earthquakes have been feld in Taiwan, the Philippines, Iceland, Spain and New England. An enormous quake struck the Indian Ocean. This quake, 120 nautical miles sse of Bantam in the Cocos Islands, reached 7.5 on the Richter scale. An extremely rare earthquake also rattled dishes in Western Massachusetts. Measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale, the quake startled residents in this normally quiet area. Mild though it was, it was one of the strongest ever recorded west of the Connecticut River in New Enagland. Although the region has many ancient fault lines, most of them over 200 million years old, the quake could not be attributed to movement along a specific fault, and seismologists were unable to explain it.
