According to the official USGS website there have been 380 earthquakes in magnitude of 2.5 or greater registered, in the past 7 days alone (at the
time of this writing).
In fact i believe it was on wednseday this week that they registered almost 60 quakes in one day....if anyone has been watching lately.
I tend to check the USGS website quite often these days, i havent been watching for a long time, and not very experienced at all when it comes to
earthquake data/ analysis but can anyone shed light on what is the typical average of quakes that occur each week??
and whether this seems as quite a bit more activity than usual???
I did a bit of research and based on how long i have been watching the website this past few months i think the average is around 30 a day, sometimes
less sometimes a bit more, but i have never seen 380 in a week, i thought it was quite high!
