A swarm of earthquakes is currently rattling Chirilagua-Intipucá in southern El Salvador. As of May 9, 2018 – or 4 days after the beginning of the seismic unrest – more than 730 earthquakes hit the area, damaging nearly 289 homes, producing small landslides, and prompting evacuations for more than 2,000 people. The swarm began on Sunday with at least nine quakes of M4.3 or greater, including three of magnitude 5.2 to 5.6.

The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources tweeted a few hours ago: “Swarm in Chirilagua-Intipucá: Until 6:00 a.m. [12:00 GMT] on May 9 a total of 747 earthquakes have been recorded, 110 earthquakes felt:”

As of May 8, 2018, authorities had already installed 26 shelters (13 in Chirilagua, 6 in Intipucá and 7 in El Carmen) to accomodate 2,043 people (or 453 families), that have been displaced from their homes by the tremors:

In addition, “there are a total of 289 damaged houses, with 11 homes completely destroyed. Damages were also reported in the Los Conejos School Center in the district of El Piche (southeast), at the Los Conejos farmhouse in the El Carmen municipality of La Unión and in the municipality of Conchagua (southeast) and in Intipucá:”
