The month of November 2020 was marked by 60 earthquakes of magnitudes between 1.3 and 3.4 over the entire national territory, according to the seismic report for the month of November 2020, based on the events recorded by the national seismological networks and regional (Ayiti-earthquakes, UTS-BME, RD-OSPL-Loyola).
