Big Isle continues to shake, rattle and roll
You probably didn't feel either of them, but there already have been at least two minor earthquakes on the Big Island today.
One occurred at 4:18 a.m. and was assigned a magnitude of 1.7 by the United States Geological Survey. It was centered about 3 miles west-southwest of Kailua, Kona.
An earlier quake, with a magnitude of 2.2, occurred at 1:45 a.m. about 7 miles south-southeast of Volcano.
Including today's pipsqueak quakes, a total of 17 temblors, with magnitudes ranging from 1.7 to 2.9, have rolled through or under the Big Island this past week, most of them unnoticed by people

It's quite interesting really, to know where there have been quakes, and so on, and to see where there have been unusual ones in terms of size and location.
Also, from quakes you can see where there is particular activity in the earth's plates.
And could you not make similar points against the other Earth watch threads?
Other than that, this was done in 2004, 2005,2006, so why not this year as well?
