Anyway, not to suggest to hit a panic mode or predict anything "worse" is going to happen, I just wanted to throw a little something out there, for nothing more, a "just in case" scenario. Looking into March of this year prior to the 9.0.
From your Wikipedia list as referenced:
1)Easter Island magnitude 6.0 March 1.
2) Tarapacá magnitude 6.2 March 6.
3) South Sandwich Islands magnitude 6.5 March 6.
4)Solomon Islands 6.6 March 7.
5) magnitude 7.3 East Coast of Honshu March 9.
6)Papua New Guinea magnitude 6.5 March 9.
7) Myanmar-China magnitude 5.4 March 10.
8) Bali Sea 6.5 March 10.
Honshu magnitude 9.0 earthquake on March 11
I am having a little difficulty understanding what you are describing here.
1) Couldnt find one unless you wanted to count Mexico, Columbia, and Argentina all had one recently. (All on 7/9)
Columbia 4.3, Argentina 4.7, Mexico 4.9
I can't quite equate these to Easter Island, neither are any of them on the 1st, or of a similar magnitude?
2) Same as number 1
Are you saying Tarapaca Mag 6.2 in March equates to ?? at Easter Island on 1st July? I can't find one there on that date, nor on the 6th July BUT there was a 7.6 the other side - Kermedecs and several more in that area.
3) The general area of the Ascension Island Region? (7/9)
2 x mag 4.7 about 3,500 miles away?
4) Kermadec Island area? (7/6)
OK, a day out but yes.
5) Honshu Japan (7/10)
OK, a day out but yes.
6) Papua, Indonesia (7/10)
A 4.7 a day different?
7) Myanmar (7/10)
A 4.9 ~ 5.4, yes close enough.
8) Java and Kepulauan Barat Daya, Indonesia, Banda Sea (7/9)
2011-07-10 00:38:12, -2.879, 136.736, 4.7, 47.4, Nr. N. Coast Of Papua. Ind.
2011-07-09 19:02:55, -7.428, 128.607, 5.0, 150.8, Kepulauan Barat Daya. Ind.
2011-07-09 13:57:22, -7.374, 128.814, 4.9, 146.5, Kepulauan Barat Daya. Ind.
2011-07-09 13:26:59, -8.974, 108.428, 4.8, 36.8, Java. Ind.
2011-07-09 05:51:38, -4.111, 129.435, 5.5, 19.6, Banda Sea
2011-07-09 01:36:33, 3.911, 126.704, 4.6, 83.8, Kepulauan Talaud. Ind.
The largest at 5.5 is getting closer to the 6.5 cited, but the rest? Just too small I think.
Charting JUST the Mag 6+ so that the comparison is as the March list I get this.
I have to say that personally I can't see a similarity any more than you would get from any time comparison with these areas considering they are all active, but maybe I just don't get the bigger picture.
Sebastian Alegria, a 14-year-old Chilean high school student, decided to hack together a twitter alert system that's already a year ahead of the Chilean government's own planned project.
Alegria's rudimentary yet effective system comes from having survived Chile's own earthquakes last year and seeing the devastation that covered Japan earlier this year.
Keen on finding an inexpensive solution for early earthquake detection, he rigged an Arduino and domestic earthquake detector to tweet seconds before detectable seismic activity. Tweeting from @AlarmaSismos, it has already successfully detected every major earthquake that could be felt from Santiago since May. And it's piling on the Twitter followers.
The lake formed in 1911, after a great earthquake, when the Murgab River was blocked by a big landslide. The earthquake was reportedly estimated at 6.5-7.0 on Richter scale. The landslide was 2.2 million cubic meters and formed the Usoy Dam, which is 3km long and 550m high, the tallest natural dam in the world. The lake reached its current level in 1920.
In 2000, the Lake Sarez Risk Mitigation Project (LSRMP) was launched. The project aiming at reducing the risk related to the natural structure by implementing a monitoring and an early warning system, by training the population leaving downstream and developing long term solutions, is a partnership between the Government and the people of Tajikistan, the World Bank and the donor community represented by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The main Tajik counterpart for the project is the Committee for Emergency Situations (CES).
A 2004 study by the World Bank held that the dam was stable. The principal danger seems to be a partially detached mass of rock of about 3 cubic kilometers that could break loose and fall into the lake. Since the valley below the dam is so narrow, any flood would be very destructive.

More than 450 killed. Damage occurred in the Chong-Kemin (Bol'shoy Kemin) Valley as well as at Anan'yevo (Sazanovka) and Oytal (Urtal), Kyrgyzstan. Over 770 brick buildings were destroyed at Almaty (Vernyy, Alma-Ata), Kazakhstan. Faulting, fractures and large landslides were observed over an area 200 km (125 mi) long in the Chong-Kemin and Chilik Valleys and along the shore of Lake Issyk-Kul'. Hanging objects swung in cities more than 1,000 km (625 mi) away in Kazakhstan and Russia

I emailed David Jay Brown. He has done some research in this area. I asked him if he had heard of any recent unusual animal behavior in the area. His website says he tries to answer all inquires. Well see.
Jeez before I could post Berekelygal posted!!
