Guatemala hit by four earthquakes

Four earthquakes have struck southern Guatemala within two and a half hours, shaking buildings in the capital and killing three people.
President Álvaro Colom called for calm after tremors were felt across much of the Central American country, the largest a 5.8 magnitude quake. All were centred in an area about 30 miles (51km) south-east of the capital, Guatemala City, according to the US Geological Survey.http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/20/guatemala-earthquakes-leave-three-dead
