If you’ve been feeling more shaking this year, it’s not your imagination. The number of quakes greater than magnitude 4.0 in Southern California and Baja California has increased significantly in 2010. There have been 70 such quakes so far this year, the most of any year in the last decade. And it’s only April.
There were 30 in 2009 and 29 in 2008. Seismologists said they are studying the uptick but cannot fully explain it.

Earthquakes have been in the forefront of public consciousness this year after January’s devastating temblor in Haiti, which killed tens of thousands. It was followed weeks later by a destructive temblor in Chile.
And then came the Mexicali quake, which was stronger than Haiti's although much less destructive.
Hauksson said it’s easy to read too much into this year's quake uptick.

the increase is already undeniable.
the psuedo-scientists can say all they want, but i watched the unusual swarms move all the way up the line since chili. disregarding all the other notable quakes around the world, the ones in my area of longitude have me most concerned.
first chile, then mexico, now southern cali keeps shaking.
san francisco bay area is next, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to follow a line, and up here were sitting on top of at least 4 parallel faultlines that are all overdue
