Is it just me or has the earthquake map just been lit up lately?
I`m no expert, but I do for fun, watch the map on usgs.gov and the amount of earthquakes lately, in my opinion, has been very significant.
I make mental notes each day on locations ad sizes. I have been doing this for years and after a while, as with anything, you do begin to see patterns
or at least know when something is odd or significantly different. What I find most intriguing is the recent outbreaks of large earthquakes and their
locations as well.
To me, it doesn`t seem odd to have an odd placed earthquake on any given day, or to have a larger then normal earthquake in a known earthquake zone on
any given day. What seems more stranger then usual is that we have been having many earthquakes in places not known for earthquakes and many larger
then normal earthquakes in the known earthquake regions. Combine that with the fact that we are having multiple larger then normal earthquakes in the
known earthquake hotbed regions all at the same time an we have a whole lot of activity going on right now.
If my memory serves me right, for the past few days we had two larger then 8 magnitude earthquakes in the Sumatra zone. On that same day we had a 6.2
or 5.9 right off the coast of Oregon, somewhere that we see earthquakes frequently but usually much smaller and a 4 would be something to talk about.
Down in southern Cali or northern Mexico or right off the coast there we had a 6.9 also the same day and a smaller, I believe 6.5 a few hundred miles
south in Mexico or right by the coast there, Before any of this happened I thought the 5.5 off the coast of Alaska was significant for the day.
Alaska, Aleutian Islands, also an area that has many earthquakes but rarely a 5. Later that night there was a 4.5 off the coast of Maine, a really
unusual location for an earthquake. Again, that same night or very early morning hours of the next ay there were two more 4,3, I believe, in Oklahoma,
also an unusual location.
All of this happening in one day is very unusual to me. Too many locations in one day for significant discussion, let alone to have them all popping
off at once, is crazy.
Yesterday I looked at the map and yet still am seeing a lot of odd locations popping up and also seeing more 6`s all in one day, not so much in
unusual locations but again seeing more then one 6 in a day is not that normal, let alone having many and many high 5`s as well. Today it continues.
The earthquake map on usgs.gov has over 320 earthquakes marked which accounts for the past seven days but is about 100 higher then normal on any given
day although many are aftershocks due to the powerful 8`s by Indonesia and the other recent 6`s and 7`s as well.
