Ok so im really confused. I've been lurking ATS for a good couple of months now and never really cared about earthquakes, or i just never noticed them ?

But they seem to be popping up alot in the recent months, or is this just normal plate activity ? I really have no idea. Enlighten me....

By the way i know all of you love new information so here we go, pure C&P
