Do you realize how small those quakes are?

Yes, I do. But the number of quakes is miles above normal. Just a month or two back all you would see were one or two a week. Now they have been averaging more than one an hour at times. And most, if not all, of them are in a very localized area.

So now the question is, are they going to eventually subside, or are we in for a large quake triggered by the stresses being released in the swarm area that could be building stress in another fault nearby.

It could go either way. Such things are scary because they are so unpredictable,.

I have waited for a while before posting this. I am wondering what is going on. The bottom entry in the list below was the last one for a little over 21 hours. I find it quite odd that an area that was having small quakes at the rate of several per hour at times should suddenly have nothing for that long. Now there have been 3 more in about 35 minutes followed by another 50 minutes later. This list is current at the time of this reply at Sat Dec 22 17:52:15 UTC 2012 or 2 1/4 minutes past the last entry.

Are they hiding something or did they have en equipment failure? The USGS has been known to bury data in the past, so I don't really know which idea to buy into.
