I wonder if the sun's increased activity has anything to do with it.
I know we are going to hit the peak of the solar cycle in a few months.
It seems to me that every ten or so years, right around the peak of the solar cycle we see some growth in earthquakes.
I wonder if this region is going to become more active with time.

Another X-Class Solar Flare !
The X-Flare party continues as Active Region 11748 unleashed its 4th X-flare inside of 48 hours. At 01:47 UTC this morning peaking to X1.2 was reported from this active region which continues to grow in size. Associated with this blast was a Type II, Type IV Sweep Frequency Events and a 10cm Radio Burst (Ten Flare) measuring 490 Solar Flux Units. We will now need to wait to see if the resulting Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has an earth bound component in the coming hours.

really kicking things off?
that's one theory about earthquakes ...
