A strong earthquake of 6.7 on the Richter scale was registered off the coast of Nicaragua, world agencies reported.

It had a focal depth of 43 km
An earthquake of magnitude 7.2 has struck the Alaska Peninsula, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said late on Wednesday.

A report presented to parliament called for attention to the threat of tsunamis in the Marmara Sea in the event of a possible major earthquake expected in Turkey's northwestern region.
Drafted by a parliamentary subcommittee investigating earthquake risks, the report underlined that Turkey is susceptible to tsunamis due to the high seismic activity under the sea.
Scientists say it is a normal magnitude for this region
What seismologists agree on is that it is an unusual phenomenon to record small earthquakes in a short period of time
