I'm the last person to believe in any predictions but I noticed this thread on ATS predicting a massive earthquake for the 18th.
Could it be these shocks are a precursor to a massive one in Alaska that will shake and posibly tsunami the US West Coast?

What is the number so far? I've read once 90 and then 78 and 83... Is there any accuracy in the data?
In a new study, NASA and United States Geological Survey
(USGS) scientists found that retreating glaciers in southern
Alaska may be opening the way for future earthquakes.
The study examined the likelihood of increased earthquake
activity in southern Alaska as a result of rapidly melting
glaciers. As glaciers melt they lighten the load on the
Earth's crust. Tectonic plates, that are mobile pieces of the
Earth's crust, can then move more freely. The study appears
in the July issue of the Journal of Global and PlanetaryChange.

The Cleveland stratovolcano is one of the most active in the Aleutian Island chain. The volcano is fueled by magma displaced by the subduction of the northwest-moving tectonic Pacific Plate under the tectonic North America Plate.
this could very well be the source.
