Or just reported more maybe?

...especially on here. Its almost seems like a race to post it first sometimes. Any earthquake, large or small.

I am always glad people are watching the quakes since I am on the coast. Seems to me there have been a lot of large and many 3-4 in places where they weren't before stacking up!

That's a good thing. We ATSers get our information by the minute, sometimes faster.

Seems like quite a few big ones lately.

There was a thread created two days ago predicting a EQ over in that region.

Yeah...how crazy is that. That's a direct hit, I'd say.
