There is a volcano in the Philippines that was suppose to blow on December 24th or 25th... They said it had to blow within the next day or two on the 23rd. It hasn't blown, and most likely, it is building up.

I dunno, I'm usually a little skeptical of thinking there are more or less earthquakes or volcano action in a certain time.

I have noticed that the earth is constantly in motion, and some periods there is a little more activity than other days. Same with volcanoes. I recall reading in textbooks how some periods in the 50s-60, had many earthquakes going on, while other decades it was quieter. But over all, I dont think there is anything to worry about......... yet


Historical Earthquakes
20th Century Quakes
21st Century Quakes

Hope you guys and gals take a look and see how its been in the past. I guess we also just notice these things more than before. Thats another reason why it can seem like more activity!
