On a side note Ethopia started construction last week i believe on the largest dam ever built in Africa. Its going up on the Nile river, going to make Ethopia a big electricity supporter. I never new Ethopia was such a earthquake prone region, makes you wonder about the soundess of building a dam there.

OK, got the infos from USGS for this area since 1976.

EQ greater than 4.3

EQ greater than 5.0

Note that it already happened on September 2005 for a week: 19 EQ greater than 5.0 in height days.

Ok, so not normal.

I'm interested in the Mining going on there.

Perhaps there is a connection.

There are many volcanoes nearby. Here is a link to one of the earthquakes in Ethiopia that shows nearby volcanoes:

Here is the link to the home page - it has a lot of interesting info on earthquakes and other emergencies going on in the world. It also tells you if there are volcanoes, nuclear plants or airports near earthquakes:

The area of the quakes appears to be volcanic in origin.

There are craters and lava flows everywhere in that region

Africa is spreading apart.
See Ethiopian Rift Valley, Great Rift Valley, etc.

Not likely... possible though.

How many volcanoes are along the Atlantic rift?

Thats pretty scary aye. Might me something bigger to come for this area of the world. Just here in Christchurch NZ we are experiencing large volcanic ash clouds from Chile. Sky looks great at dusk. That must of been some eruption in Chile.
