Meh. 4.4 isn't even worth mentioning outside the local news. There's an average of around 35 earthquakes between M4 and M5 worldwide every day (estimated because a lot of them are too remote to be detected).
Check out this list:
Bigger earthquakes get increasingly rare, however. The frequency drops by roughly an order of magnitude for each integer increase in Richter magnitude. M5's are roughly 1/10 as common as M4's. M6's roughly 1/10 as common as M5's, etc. A magnitude 4 is about 10,000 times as likely to occur as a magnitude 8.
