someone said today was going to be the longest day in human history...April 17th. I hope they are wrong for all sakes.
Because earthquakes happens all the time, just the reporting of earthquakes have increased significantly.

The East African Rift is an active rift between the Nubian and Somali protoplates. This rift is caused by elevated heat flow from the mantle under Kenya and the Afar region. Trending NNE to SSW, the East African Rift is composed of a western and an eastern branch. The eastern branch (sometimes called the Gregory Rift) is characterized by high volcanic activity and the western branch (sometimes called the Albertine Rift) is characterized by deeper basins, which contain lakes and sediments. The extension rate for this rift starts at about 6 millimeters per year in the north, and declines to the south.

How many more major earthquakes do we have to witness before the people start admitting that something significant is happening?
