Can someone answer a question for me? When an earthquake hits does it do more damage when it is shallow or more damage when it is deep?

They may be minimum in magnitude but there are so many that I guess it can be said that the Alaska is being bombarded by earthquakes. I'm just curious as to the effect that they are having on Augustine volcano in Alaska.

Thanks for keeping us informed CelticHeart. I hope others will take an intrest in this subject. We are no doubt have an increase in quake activity.

Question is, Is it natural or is man behind some of this?

Busy day today
Here are several more since Celticheart post update earlier

They have to be related somehow considering that you have 4 cluttered right there in the same area. Can a earthquake of 4.7 cause aftershocks of a higher magnitude?

After just a few minutes research, I discovered that besides Alaska, the US's biggest earthquakes are from Madrid, Missouri.

I found this really surprising and started looking into it more

1812, February 7, 09:45 UTC, New Madrid, Missouri
Magnitude ~8
This is the fourth earthquake of the 1811-1812 series. Several destructive shocks occurred on February 7, the last of which equaled or surpassed the magnitude of any previous event. The town of New Madrid was destroyed. At St. Louis, many houses were damaged severely and their chimneys were thrown down. The meizoseismal area was characterized by general ground warping, ejections, fissuring, severe landslides, and caving of stream banks.
After a little digging, I run across a real eye opener...."
Russian Scientists are reporting today that the fracturing of the North American Plate is violently increasing, and leading to outbursts of inner Earth methane deposits, and which in turn are fueling massive fires in both the United States Oklahoma and Texas Regions for the second time in six weeks.
To the massive fires in these Regions six weeks ago we can read as reported by the CNN News Service in their November 28th article titled "Winds fuel wildfires in Oklahoma, Texas" and which said, "High winds on Monday hampered crews who for a second day battled wildfires that destroyed homes, forced hundreds to evacuate and injured firefighters in parts of Oklahoma and Texas."
To the massive fires raging in these same exact Regions today we can read as reported by the MSNBC News Service in their article titled "Oklahoma, Texas told to expect more fires", and which says, "Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued a disaster declaration Tuesday after more than 70 fires were reported in the northern and central parts of the state. Firefighters from surrounding states were called in to help. At least 50 homes were destroyed in Texas, along with at least five homes and nearly two-dozen other buildings in Oklahoma."
The causing of these massive fires we had previously reported upon in our December 14th report titled "North American Plate Factures Reported As Major US Hydro Electric Dam Fails and Oklahoma Meer’s Fault Zone Begins Outgassing", and wherein we had stated:
“The collapse of this dam also coincides with reports from the near Meer’s Fault Zone Region in Oklahoma where a major outgassing event is currently taking place, and as we can read as reported by the Enid News and Eagle News Service in their article titled "Mysterious Kingfisher-area gas geysers leave officials puzzled" and which says:
“Mysterious unrefined natural gas leaks erupting in rural Kingfisher County in recent days continue to have officials puzzled as to their cause. "We originally thought a pipeline had exploded," said Matt Skinner, Oklahoma Corporation Commission public information manager. "We had the pressure to zero pressure, and the leaks seemed to get bigger. So that's not it." Skinner had said at a press conference Monday geologists and hydrologists are beginning to study underground maps of the area to find an explanation. "We've ruled out the probables, and now we're into the unprobables," he said. "We've never seen one like this before, one that covers such a large area. It's another animal."Skinner said the leak was unusual because of its size and that it was "moving with no explanation
Read for yourself and check her ref.
If these fires are caused by earthquakes, Why are we being mislead?

I find your post most interesting Freedomrik.
Please, keep a close eye on it and keep us informed.

CelticHeart, you are doing a great job too with the info. posted

The general increase of seismic activity is resulting to be strange. I wonder if we should worry. All this can lead to something really big. Don´t you think so? :

The question is: is the Andreas Fault awakening or is it something even more important?

BTW The San Andreas Fault is the boundary between two plates (the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate). The entire San Andreas Fault covers more than 800 miles long and extends to depths of at least 10 miles within the Earth...

Has anyone checked the depth of the earthquake on the GOLF OF CALIFORNIA?

The answer is: 10 km (6.2 miles) set by location program

I know that the seismic activity in Alaska has increased lately and it has had an affect on Augustine, but has anybody checked these earthquakes that are ocurring in the 'Ring of Fire'?
