The earth has not stopped shaken since the last the deadly M7.8 earthquake off Muisne, Ecuador, on April 16, 2016.

On April 22, 2016, a series of strong quakes has again struck the area:

M6.0 – 33km NNW of Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador
M5.8 – 36km NNW of Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador
M5.0 – 27km NW of Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador
M4.8 – 39km NNW of Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador

According to Earthquake Track, 84 earthquakes rattled Ecuador in the past year. And half struck the country within last month.

There is still much energy to be released in this area of the world. But such strong aftershocks are kind of preoccupating.
