6 quake strikes Kamchatka peninsula in 24 hours
Kamchatka, Russia contains about 160 volcanoes with about 29 of them currently considered as being active. The quakes which have rattled the peninsula were a 4.7, a 4.9, followed by a 5.0 and a 5.1 and a 4.7 and a 4.8 - so there seems to be a gradual increase in intensity and activity.

4.9 a few days ago
Can't find one, there was a 4.6 on the 1st March NZDT (28th UTC) at Governors Bay, is that the one?
Can't really compare the Peak Ground Velocity between the two, no two same seismo stations PGV readings available for both quakes.
PARS Panorama Rd has 1.43859 cm/sec for last nights 4.8
MQZ McQueens Valley has 1.17254 cm/sec for Tuesdays 4.6, and the seismo is further away too.
Looks pretty normal.
Yeah I know "there have been so many"
Location probably has a lot to do with it too, being west of the Port Hills, they must absorb some of the energy from the Lyttelton side aftershocksedit on 5-3-2011 by muzzy because: (no reason given)edit on 5-3-2011 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

I would just like to note for the record, we just had a new moon, and just hours ago, we reached apogee.
There's a correlation.

Has anyone looked at 1993 (the previous Super Moon) to see if there was any uplift in geological/volcanic activity??
