If you check out yesterday's quakes, Alaska had a fair amount of 2.0< quakes. Including a 4.4, 3.3, and 3.6. Honestly, I view earthquakes daily, and
this isn't exactly that out of the norm. The 4.4 is a little bit out of the norm, but not unheard of for Alaska.
Now I will say, I have only been viewing earthquakes daily for this year. I'm not sure what the trends were years prior, but this wiki page claims
there has been an uptake in earthquakes this year. Wiki
A recent increase in the number of major earthquakes has been noted, which could be explained by a cyclical pattern of periods of intense tectonic
activity, interspersed with longer periods of low-intensity. However, accurate recordings of earthquakes only began in the early 1900s, so it is too
early to categorically state that this is the case.
ETA: I might want to retract what I said. I counted the number of earthquakes over 2.5 for today, yesterday, and the day before for Alaska (because I
really have that much time on my hands).
So far today (8:30am in Alaska) - 15
Yesterday - 4
Monday - 5
Count me oblivious! You may be on to something.
