At least 69 earthquakes have reportedly struck the Pacific's dreaded Ring of Fire over a 48-hour period, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
The series of tremors included 16 quakes measuring 4.5 or more on the Richter scale. The quakes rocked the dreaded fault line Sunday and Monday, rattling Venezuela, Indonesia, Bolivia, Japan and Fiji. While 53 others occurred along the disaster zone.
Fiji was reportedly the most impacted, with five tremors above 4.5 in magnitude hitting the small island. Among them, a massive earthquake, registering 8.2, hit 174 miles north-northeast of Ndoi Island, Fiji Sunday, according to the USGS.
Trinidad was also affected by the earthquake that struck Venezuela, resulting in damage to buildings and cars as well as causing erosion.
The Ring of Fire is a 25,000-mile horseshoe-shaped ring, accounting for approximately 90% of the world's earthquakes. The region also contains 452 volcanoes which are more than 75% of the world's active and dormant volcanoes. The ring spans North and South America to Japan and New Zealand.
