I think because the earthquakes are on an overlay on the map, when you zoom in they will align.
but its not a true representation if you know what i mean.
For instance you can make them appear in the same place.

The Chamber of Environmental Engineers on Wednesday released a statement that dangerous amounts of cyanide were found in a sample taken from a water fountain in Kütahya, where a tailings dam of a silver mining facility collapsed earlier this month.
The statement said that thousands could die in case of a leak. The TMMOB said if the tailings dam collapsed completely, the toxic sludge would flow into the villages of Köprüören, Kızılcakaya, Yoncalı and Örenköy, all located close to the facility. In case of an overflow of the tailings dam, the cyanide waste could easily reach the Sakarya River through the Porsuk River and then into the Black Sea. “A disaster 25 times worse than the tailings dam disaster in Hungary that unnerved the entire world last year could happen in Kütahya any minute.
The facility, owned by the Eti Silver Corporation, reportedly contains 15 million cubic meters of cyanide. It is located 34 kilometers from the provincial capital, near the village of Gümüş.
with all the earthquakes in the region at the minute I wouldn't like to be anywhere near there at the momentedit on 20-5-2011 by JackieO because: to add location
"The ruptures in the fault are migrating westwards," Niyazi Turkelli explains, waving towards a map of Turkey on the wall with the active North Anatolian fault-line marked in red. The only section still unruptured is the one closest to Istanbul.
"The fault could break once or in several stages," Niyazi says. "If it ruptures once, then the expected magnitude will be 7.7, maybe 30km (19 miles) from Istanbul. It could be a disaster."
