There was a 3.7 off the coast of San Diego today at a depth of 0 km. is this a rarity?
Q: What does it mean that the earthquake occurred at a depth of 0 km?
A: An earthquake cannot occur at depth of 0 km. In order for an earthquake to occur, two blocks of crust must slip past one another, and it is physically impossible for this to happen at the surface of the earth. So why do we report that the earthquake occured at a depth of 0 km sometimes? Sometimes it is simply a very shallow event with poor depth resolution, but more often it is not actually an earthquake, but a quarry blast. These explosions are recorded by the seismic network and located by the software. When they are reviewed by a seismic analyst, they are labeled as a quarry blast in the earthquake catalog.
Volcanologist Brad Scott said although the earthquake was centred near Taupo it was more likely felt on the east coast of both islands. There had been reports of it being broadly felt along the east coast in Hawke's Bay and Wairarapa, but not in Taupo, he said. Scott said the earthquake was below the plate boundary, and the volcanic zone of the central North Island would have absorbed much of the energy.

There seem to be a few in the usual place and possibly more than usual along the line of volcanoes. In terms of earthquakes in the area 40N-45N, 132.5W-123.5W the activity has been quieter earlier in the year.
Bear in mind also that Alaska has done a little stress relieving with the 7.2
