I hope everyone on the island will be okay too.
Do you think there will be anymore of that magnitude or worse?

Looks as though it didn't strike near any big cities or towns.

I just noticed that one myself.

The west coast is worth a close watch in the coming days.


I think similar ..

Probably soon in next days we will have stronger activity and EQ of M 7.2+ somewhere worldwide, also more activity on west coast ..

Last one of M 7.2 + was on 2013-02-06 Santa Cruz ..

I've noticed that the larger earthquakes do seem to come in threes, usually spaced apart by 120 degrees. Almost as if there's a rebalancing process going on.
