That is why I need the formula to convert to Ms, otherwise their data is useless for this project.
Yes, just one - that is unless you count the small one about 2 minutes afterwards

The quakes are on wide area, so I don't think its a volcano.
Subsurface data indicate that fluid was injected into effectively sealed compartments, and we interpret that a net fluid volume increase after 18 yr of injection lowered effective stress on reservoir-bounding faults. Significantly, this case indicates that decades-long lags between the commencement of fluid injection and the onset of induced earthquakes are possible, and modifies our common criteria for fluid-induced events. The progressive rupture of three fault planes in this sequence suggests that stress changes from the initial rupture triggered the successive earthquakes, including one larger than the first [emphasis added].

This is a worrisome conclusion which seems to indicate that even if fracking is halted, earthquake activity can continue as a result of previous activity, and earthquake magnitude can increase over time.

03.04.2013 | 10:06 North Iceland Quakes Move Closer to Land A new earthquake swarm formed 15-20 kilometers southeast of the epicenter of the 5.5 earthquake by Grímsey island off North Iceland last night. The strongest quakes of last night had a magnitude of 4.6 and 4.7.
The Civil Protection Department declared a level of uncertainty yesterday due to the seismic activity, visir.is reports.
The new epicenter lies closer to the mainland and the earthquakes could be felt widely in North Iceland, including Akureyri. Early this morning one quake hit in Öxarfjörður fjord in Northeast Iceland.
The seismic activity does not seem to be subsiding. The Civil Protection Department pointed out in a statement that six series of earthquakes which have occurred in the region since 1969 have lasted days or weeks.

Just me being alarmist I'm sure. But the U.S. eastern quakes seem to be in a line. I don't have google earth on this computer. I'm sure if you draw a line from the West Virginia quake over to Oklahoma, you'll see they're kinda lining up. I'd call the area a bit of a cluster muck right now, being that this activity bucks the long term lull that's been in place. There's been quakes, but not like we've seen over the last few years. Oklahoma and Texas have made it seem like there's been a constant drum beat. Sorry, I didn't even mean to write- I'll dump some links on here that relate to everything and my own cluster muck thinking.
First I want to start with things I didn't know.
I did know some of these following facts, but definitely not all.
Earthquakes can cause avalanches. And if you watch carefully during the rock avalanche, it looks just like fluid. That's my theory. It's all about water. And fluids. Because as we keep learning, even rocks and solid ground can turn into a fluid state.
Here's some stuff I didn't know as well. I think this video was made before Banda Aceh and Japan. Because he doesn't mention them when he describes mega thrusts. I knew about Cascadia. Don't we all????
oops, forgot second video link..
I have have noticed that in the past.
And there does seem to be a little extra action on or near the 37th parallel.
And not just in the U.S.
