19 Earthquakes over the past 2 days - NSW Australia

Over the past 48 hours the New England Region and the North Coast has seen a relativly high frequency of earthquakes.These were ranging between 2 and 4.2, with the most recent in the Coffs Harbor district. Recently there has been a fair bit of activity around the pacific rim with volcanic eruptions in the Philippines, an earthquake in west Indonesia, and quite a few earthquakes around the rim itself too. A few tsunami warnings have been made too for the region, around the pacific islands too. However, aside form the high frequeny of events the activity is not related. Although earthquakes are uncommon in Austrlia, it has suprised locals and done minor structural damage in the region across northern NSW. It will be interesting to see how long it continues for; however, we have no way of predicting how long it will last. It is an interesting point in time at the moment though.
