Indeed they are.
I heard at work today that there was a 7.6 in Peru.
Turns out, that was false. It was a 5.9 and it wasn't even felt by people in the area because of the depth. 5.9 is substantial, I suppose, but
nothing too noteworthy. 5.9 would be in the "slightly above ordinary" seismic activity for any given day.
However, there was a major quake on the same day. So it is interesting, and apparently they are "Thinking that the three quakes may be related."
Makes me say: "Duh!"
I mean, I saw a chart on one of these threads a while back, probably the Yellowstone thread, that told the reader that magnitude 8 quakes only occur
about 5 times a year. We've had the equivalent of two of them in one 24 hour period.
Then, on their heels, a 6. I would say they are most definately related, but I'm not a geologist.
Would I be off base to predict a major volcanic eruption soon?
Probably so, but I'll throw that out there so people can't call it God, when it happens. And if it happens.
