Unlucky 13 and Earthquakes

A moderate earthquake struck El Salvador, today, December 13. The quake measured 6.0 on the Richter scale and was located off the Pacific coast near the Guatemalan border. There were no reports of damage or injuries in the first few hours following the quake.

The 13th day of the month appears to be bad luck -- the tragic earthquakes of 2001 struck on January 13 and February 13.
