Rock and roll!!!
Definately some shifting going on.
I've always suspected underground nuclear testing is causing all this activity in the last 5 years.

Wow, the ring of fire is really cookin!!!!!!!! I wonder how many more will pop up, and I'm concerned about the effect this will have on the active volcanoes in days to come. Something's going on down there. As we approach alignment, this could get way worse.

There are daily earthquakes all around the Pacific rim. This is quite normal. Haiti was overdue.
