Although not a major EQ, nevertheless it was felt throughout the capital city of Delhi, India.

There are hundreds of EQs occurring on a daily basis throughout the world on Land and Sea. However the last 2 years, the affects are felt by many around the world on Land. I am not too sure if the cause of it is really the CME or Planetory alignment or the Lunar Cycle. None of these theoretical factors have been proven to be the cause of EQs.

4.3 earthquake is liking bumping into the coffee table in the middle of night. Not fun, but not a real big deal either.

True but for a region where they're unusual and the building codes do not meet EQ requirements, it definitely is an eye opener
Similar to the VA quake though it was a 5.8.

In the wrong environment any quake can kill - although it's not the strength of the event that will kill you, it's the amount of unstable buildings around you at the time.

Here in New Zealand our 7.1 killed no-one (not in an urban space) - the 6.3 killed over a hundred (hit the town centre). A 5.1 in Spain this year killed 8.

Precisely my point. If the buildings and structures were not constructed in accordance to a EQ prone zone, then certainly there will be damage and casualties even with a 4.3.

However it was amazing that after the EQ in Delhi, there were 2 more EQ's in the European region of the same magnitude. Definitely there are tectonic changes occuring and will be for a while before it settles down for a while.

Not sure about the comet but definitely the Tectonic plates are active for the past few years.

So many EQ activities within the last few years over populated regions. There are several EQ's occurring on a daily basis around the world and in the ocean.
