Yup......keeping an eye on those continuous 'blue' squares.
USGS quake map of states
I noticed last night Utah had a 3.5 in the middle of their state...only to be dropped down to a 1.6! I have rarely ever seen a quake size reduced so much.
Anyways, yes. There continues to be odd little quakes in areas we don't typically see them, or at least not this often. Some could argue the Virginia quakes are just continued after-shocks, but what about all the others?
I think they all indicate the increasing stress being displaced (just my un-educated opinion )
I mentioned to watch Oklahoma a couple of times....and yes, they had a small, insignificant quake, but I say to continue watching.

Well as you well know, CA does have a lot of earthquakes and the smoking hill has been smoking on and off since 2006. The 4.2 we just had did not seem like much of anything. Cetainly not out of the norm. Every year we get quakes in this range somewhere in LA county and the valley is one of the more common locations.
But if you find some strange correlation I'll read it.
