I was looking at recent earthquakes, and two happen as I was browing USGS.

  • 10.0 km depth

M 5.5 - central Mid-Atlantic Ridge​

  • 5.508°N 32.837°W
  • 10.0 km depth

Nothing significant so far, but there is little information on the area since it is literally in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean halfway between Brazil and Africa.

If not further earthquakes, then it is a no-nevermind.
