Lilbourn, Missouri is currently hit by a swarm of earthquakes
An area of southeast Missouri experienced five earthquakes in less than hour Monday morning, experts say.

It started with a 2.6 magnitude temblor around 11:18 a.m. near Lilbourn, a small city just north of Missouri's boot heel, according to the United States Geological Survey. A mere three minutes later, a 1.1 magnitude quake rumbled nearby.

Just before 11:30 a.m., a 2.7 magnitude quake rattled southwest of Lilbourn followed by a 1.8 magnitude quake only five minutes later, the USGS says.

It would be 23 minutes before the next quake, another magnitude 2.7, shook an area just west of Lilbourn, the USGS says.

All five quakes happened within a 40-minute window.

Five days of torrential downpour in India have left at least 148 people dead, as record monsoon rains create the worst flooding conditions the country has seen in decades.

The bulk of the fatalities were reported in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, where 111 are believed to have died in the floods - many by drowning or in building collapses - while several dozen more lost their lives in Bihar, India Today reports. The death toll continues to climb as the rains persist.

Dubbed the "Hikka cyclone," the storm is India's largest monsoon since 1994, and has produced record-breaking rainfall, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said - with the city of Mumbai seeing more precipitation than it had in 61 seasons prior.
