I wonder how often there have been 3 or more quakes over 5.0 within a couple of days in different parts of the world? I'm not sure how much damage
a quake of that size would do to a city. Lots of variables. California will probably get a lot bigger one in a couple of years.
This reminds me of an experiment I will try again. I wonder if you live on the San Andreas fault if the ground moves quite often?
The most interesting aspect of these quakes to me is the humming noise that people in the UK are reporting. That just seems odd to me and reminds me
of something out of "The Langoliers" by Stephen King.
Just over a year ago I was listening to NPR when the latest edition of SoundClips came on. This segment is one of my favourites considering I work in
the business of sound, so I naturally turned it up. What I heard simply blew me away!
It was a seismographic recording of the Earth taken from multiple locations around the world simultaneously. They had to speed up the recording to be
able to hear all of the subsonic sounds...you can hear waves breaking on beaches all around the world...and earthquakes going off like popcorn!
