As for the earthquake swarm there in the 90's I'm not going into a detailed explaination here, I suggest you look up the recent swarms in a: Chile
b: Baja California, right here in this thread.
edit to add: It's perfectly normal for EQ activity like that around volcano's and they quite often happen in patches like that.

Oops, who rattled your cage? Go easy there tiger!
Whilst I agree that we do not need expressions like Well That's Fine in the thread I do have to say that there may be something to look at here and
the quakes there themselves are normal but the incidence is nor, definitely not.
I don't actually use the Earthquakes in the GE Gallery as I don't need historical ones cluttering up my already seriously cluttered GE.
I turned them on and looked at the quakes in the area which ranged from 1992 to 1995. OK, I think to my self, someone decided this lot we worth
putting in but just has not updated it.
I took the area shown below as the search area.
It is about an 80 mile spread weighted slightly towards the smaller island.
Now you would imagine that there would be other earthquakes in that area since 1995 so I collected all the available data from the ANSS database from
1990 to present for earthquakes of Mag 4 and over at depths greater than -100 miles (100 miles up in the air!!)
I received back just 23 lines of data which were these:
Basically this was not a swarm. So few quakes over 3 years could not be called a swarm.
I thought to myself, well that's fine, nothing since 1995?
That cannot be right surely. There has been one outside that search box on 4th May 2009 that I have recorded in my database, but now I must continue
on to investigate this.
Basically LifeIsEnergy was right for the wrong reasons. I don't for one second believe that they are playing at creating earthquakes, or why they
should be doing them there over that period. There are similar instances such as the little batch of quakes off the northern coast of Canada that was
attributed to the Russians exploding nukes. (ATS thread
Incidences of these short lived bursts are evident, but I am curious that nothing around this volcano, which is active, has occurred since 1995. Is it
just that they are all under 4.0? I don't know the answer to that, but I am looking. (Sans tin foil hat
