Quake Swarm in Progress

An earthquake swarm has been going on near Guatemala City for a couple of days and is likely related to the increased volcanic activity of Volcan Pacaya. Activity is concentrated in the area between Pacaya and Fuego, which is also experiencing increased volcanic activity.

As this was being written, another pair of quakes hit about 15 minutes ago, a mag 4.7 and a 4.5.
