October brought two damaging earthquakes to Ecuador and New Guinea. The Ecuador earthquake, although only magnitude 5.5, caused casualties and damage. The new Guinea earthquake, a major quake, caused a loss of life and damage. Two major earthquakes were experienced during November, in eastern Turkey on November 24 and in northern Chile on November 30. The Turkey earthquake was devastating as usual in that area. Other areas of the world experienced  strong earthquakes-Iran, China, Solomon Islands, and the Philippine Islands; some caused death and damage.

The United States experienced a number of moderate earthquakes, but no signigicant damage sustained.
