They keep comin', haven't seen so many 4.5+ in a short time-frame in a while. I think we're at 11 quakes now since 6.

Darn... and I was also looking forward to one of your cool graphs...

As there is no right-click function to "select all" in Chrome, you can use Ctrl + A. That ought to work.
(I don't use Chrome but have been told that this is the only "select" all option available for it until they upgrade and actually make it a right-click function.)

About the Virgin Islands... The fact that there hasn't been anything much over a mag 6 in that region in the past 100-odd years is not especially comforting, because if I recall correctly, Haiti was in a smiliar position -- until their big one in January of 2010. True, there had been a mag 8.0 not far away in the Dominican Republic in 1946, but nothing near that size in Haiti itself for about 150 years or so.

Yeah, Guatemala is about to get a large quake.. Could be a 7m today.. If you live there or near there, be safe! The pressure is extreme right now in that area.

I fear you may be right. The shocks seem to be getting larger.

I'm a little worried about the earthquakes moving up north. I realize this earthquake is small Mag 2.9 Northern California but it's location and depth put it in the "locked" portion of the Cascadia Subduction zone. Hopefully, it's just a one-off blip.

ETA: USGS has revised down to Mag 2.8

These may be the cause/ beginning of the Northern East Pacific Rise and Guatemala and perhaps also the os Gisborne, New Zealand Swarms over the last two days.
The 2nd one has been added since the original date to the USGS list.

5.9 2011/11/11 10:41:39 -55.835 -124.454 10.0 SOUTHERN EAST PACIFIC RISE
5.6 2011/11/11 22:50:42 -55.980 -123.927 10.0 SOUTHERN EAST PACIFIC RISE
5.1 2011/11/13 03:15:17 -55.587 -124.838 10.0 SOUTHERN EAST PACIFIC RISE

The East Pacific Rise is one of the fastest-spreading sections of the Earth's mid-ocean ridge systems, pushing the Pacific Plate east and west.

I would expect Chile and Baja to get more active too.

heres a graphic I made to show what I mean

Does anyone remember the big swarm awhile back in Puerto Rico / Virgin Islands? It went on for days. Pages & pages of listings every day with mostly PR or VI or both. I was mesmerized! I was new to watching earthquakes & didn't know it was even possible to have that many in one place in so short a time span!

What I'm wondering is, if my memory is right or not. I think that was before Haiti's big one. I know I was surprised at the time, because they didn't have any small warning ones leading up to it that I saw, just BOOM, the big one out of nowhere! But that huge swarm nearby made me wonder. I took notes at the time, but must not have kept them. Am I remembering the time frame correctly?

Also I've noticed that it seems like whenever S America, NZ / NG, Indonesia & Japan show up on the same day with high 4's or low 5's that a big one is likely very soon. Just coincidence? I've only been watching for a couple of years, so it's not really long enough to be assuming things on my own!!!

Thanks!

I'll look into it, I seem to remember that, and a 6 in the Caribbean too around the same time.

EPR and NPR continue on to join up with Gulf of California and the San Andreas Fault so there is potential for movement there.
Could be totally wrong, I'm useless at predictions.
just saying, compared to the chances of a 7 in eg China or Iceland at this time

I strongly feel the Virgin Islands-Guatemala to Possibly CA area is at risk for something. Things are wacky these past 30 hours, bad vibes.

Thanks, I just tried that and it works.
I'll see what I can draw up, its getting more and more interesting with the Swarms on either side of Central America right now.

Mexico?

Currently there are 6 little quakes showing on the USGS California/Nevada chart. I have never seen them post a mag 1 earthquake. Is this normal?

I logged in to check and see what's up with that. Funny little swarm in a pattern. Like a cracking egg shell with a chick inside.
