I think this series of earthquakes is actually on the Ash Hill fault in the Panamint Valley, which is still thought capable of generating a large magnitude quake.
The Garlock is about 40 miles south of this swarm's epicenter. Thank goodness. The Garlock is a big, scary fault.

not the rubbing together that causes quakes, but the actual plates themselves moving together but tearing and ripping apart within
What is transpiring? Pipeline explosions, train derailments, hydroelectric dam cracks, underground storage collapses, land cracks, sinkholes, landslides, land deformation (like Yellowstone), water main breaks, building implosions, bridge collapses, loud thunderous booms, trumpet sounding vibration noises, hums, rivers disappearing, re-emerging islands, small tremors and dormant volcanoes awakening. Earth crust shifting could be causation for these phenomenon, including the roaming plumes of methane and hydrogen sulfide gases that are causing explosions, fires, poisonings and even death because when the land fractures below, these gases are most likely escaping into the atmosphere.
...It was just mentioned the other day that it has been a very long time since there were any quakes above 7.0 and an even longer drought for the big ones, 8 and above, but at the same time, there seems to be quite an increase in small tremors and swarms of quakes under 4.5
Does it make sense that maybe because of the tearing and ripping of the plates themselves from say something like crust displacement, there may be less pressure on the plate boundaries, thus, a lack of major earthquakes?
As of Jan. 1, 2009, they don't track small quakes so how do we really know the total number.
