Please, take a look to the location of the following quakes taken place in Mozambique yesterday (4.8, 4.6 & 4.2):
I have not checked previous quakes but don´t you feel as if they were following a pattern or a line?
According to the previous map showing the seismic hazard of Africa, Mozambique does not appear as a very active area.
But Mozambique has no volcanoes. Or has it?
On the East of the African Fault System there are 6.000 km. of a volcanic chain. I have read that the crust of the Earth has cracked in some areas
leaving space for the magma to flow underneath and that from the Red Sea until Mozambique (on the south), there are docens of new volcanoes...
I am just trying to get to the reason of the seismicity increase, cause it should mean something.
(Thank you beforehand for your answers)
