This was a seismically active period, with one great earthquake, four major earthquakes, and several strong shocks worldwide. Many persons were killed and thousands were injured in three separate events-in West Irian (west New Guinea), in Bali, Indonesia, and in northeastern China.

A great earthquake (one with a Richter magnitude 8.0 or above) occurred in northeastern China. Major earthquakes (those with Richter magnitudes between 7.0 and 7.9) occurred off the southwest coast of Sumatra, in West Irian (west New Guinea), at the Panama-Colombia border, and in northeastern China.

In the United States, a number of States were struck by earthquakes, but no significant damage was reported.
