As for magnitude, I'm so obsessed with Hawthorne that the thought of magnitude boggles my mind.
Right now, there's question marks for magnitudes and some of the rest are in the negative range. All I know is that there is a list with almost sixty new earthquakes. So to my mind, wow, it's a spike. Yet, I know that the real energy is not that much when I guesstimate at the total energy in terms of magnitude.
Heck, I don't even know if I know what the heck is going on when it comes to the fault itself. For example, locations. When I'm looking at the map the locations are all over the place. Yet, in my dumb mind I keep thinking that if these earthquakes are on the same fault the should line up neatly. I know there is much more to know when it comes to the different faults with the differing depths. So, when you take in all the factors, it all gets very complex.
my NIED account is closed for renewal. Hopefully they get it running again by the morning, I'm waiting for their e-mail to continue.
Shouldn't have left it until the last minute.
t is easy to confuse the Greek god of time, Chronos (Χρόνος), with Zeus’ Titan father, Kronos (Κρόνος). So easy, in fact, that the conflation has been made for over two thousand years. The Greeks conflated them regularly, at least according to Plutarch. The Romans then coopted Kronos into the form of Saturn, who later became known as Father Time and the god of time.
To make things even more confusing, sometime in the late Roman Empire, Saturn was then conflated with the Greek concept of kairos, which designates a pregnant or opportune “special” time. Kairos is somewhat opposed to chronos, which signifies day-to-day time in general. Chronos is the quotidian, the recurrent, the passing of the years, while kairos is the moment, the event, the suspension of the normal. But both were piled onto Saturn over the centuries.
Geez doesn't time fly by, I hadn't updated the data for 62 days!

Puterman has that info on his WS. This is just the link.
SEATTLE (AP) - A minor earthquake hit northwest Washington state on Tuesday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey and the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network reported that the 3.5-magnitude temblor hit at 11:06 a.m. in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington. It was about 32 miles deep, the USGS reported.
