Is there any volcanoes near there?
This is near the Samoa area too.
If there are any people that are knowledgeable about earthquakes, could they explain what some of this information means? The Earth is a weird place, and I have a feeling in the coming years it will become even weirder.
I'm not sure if this activity would be big enough for a tsunami or not.

Huh, well that's another big one to add to the list.

Is anybody keeping count? How many of these 6+ Magnitude quakes have occured in the last 2 months?

MAP 6.2 2009/10/22 19:51:29 36.471 70.925 196.5 HINDU KUSH REGION, AFGHANISTAN

Edit: There is a list you can get of 5+ earth quakes and count the 6+ ones... 3 of them in the last 7 days so it has to be the same ones as in the list above.
