I'd say the stakes (odds) have been lowered.
Don't forget a M6 is a big release of energy.
No quakes mean a build up of tension, quakes mean release of tension.
Same with the 6.8 off California, less chance of the 9.0 ........

Normally, I would agree with you Muzzy, but that Mag 6.8 off California wasn't on the thrust fault.

It was in the Gorda Plate, which is being fractured, bent & compressed. The Gorda is trying to slide east due to it being pushed that direction from the spreading ridge to its west. But it is running into the locked Cascadia--which isn't budging at the moment. It's also being pushed north by the Pacific Plate trying to move past it toward Alaska. Smashed & crumpled--poor Gorda microplate, lol.

I'm fairly certain the most recent substantial earthquake to happen on the southern portion of the CSZ was this Mag 7.1 25 April 1992.
So it is still priming itself for a doozey at some point in the future.

Yeah, not sure I agree with muzzy there either, but for other reasons. Mostly, the issue of stress redistribution. When that quake let loose its energy, some of that will find its way north and south of epicenter and cause further stress loading on the surrounding area. I mean that is evident right away from the aftershocks. Look at their spread. And all it takes to trigger another one on a nearby fault is for that stress loading to push a loaded nearby point over the edge. Just hope it's not on the Cascadia Megathrust fault. So far though, all seems to be holding. For now.

And btw Puters, I object to your choice of names in the USGS comedy routine!

Remember all the action just N. of Antarctica??

Well, I would say, "the stakes have just been raised."

The wrong part of the page posted in my link.

I was referring to the south sandwich island quake.

My thought was that there have been quite a few quakes, in the last year, that were pretty close to that magnitude.

After the last couple down there, I started to think it was a sequence of foreshocks!

Yeah I was referring to those as well. The N Cal. reference was an afterthought.
Here is what I'm looking at, 12 years of data off ANSS, delta=0 km to 1500 km from (-60.839,-19.957)
I see what you are suggesting, but its really a one off, and very recent, long term its not the normal pattern.
M7's are fairly rare.
Here I have split the results into years, then marked the M7's (and M6.9) in Bold and then Blue for an Aftershock sequence and Red for a Foreshock sequence. To be fair I gave a 3 month window to each.
A Foreshock sequence happened twice in 12 years.

OK, I suppose that last one does raise the stakes a bit, only because of the short time since the last one in early Feb 2014.
Or it could just be a series of 6's like in 2002 and 2007.
That last 7.7 might be the biggest magnitude this area is capable of, and that might be it for another 1700+ years, I don't have any M8's in that area in my data going back to the year 314AD.

maybe this graph illustrates it better

(click image for the w__i__d__e__r version, opens in new tab/window)

I'll have a look longer term, there were 5 other M7's back to 1963 when ANSS data starts.
( I have a Lumbar sprain, off work for a week at least, so have the time)

@ Olivine and TrueAmerican
I see your points, but I don't necessarily buy into the impending Cascadia M9.0+ scenerio, and here is why.
If you look at history, say the last 1700 years .... 1700years M8+ quakes and the list
In the 1700-710 years ago period most of the action was in Europe, Greece, Switzerland, Portugal, Syria etc.
So do we say, OK recurrence levels say they are overdue for a M8-9???. No I don't believe so, over time the Tectonic Plates do settle and stop moving in sudden huge movements. Smaller (M7) events may lessen the chance of a M9.
This may be the case for Cascadia too, no one has proof that the 1700 years cycle will continue, even if there is one, that cycle theory itself is only based on silt deposits from pre history, which possibly may have been caused by other means (asteroid hit).
It needs more research, but I can't say I have seen a M9 with precursors apart from the Japan 2011 one, and that surprised everyone.
Those recurrence periods the geologists give faults are only guesswork, as we have seen from New Zealand's recent history, none of our recent M6+ events fitted the models.
Perhaps you could say the Europe/Med situation is only because records were kept there then, but not so in other places, but Japanese, Chinese and South American records go back that far too. The only record gap is in the SPac, who knows what was going on in 314 in Vanuatu or New Zealand??

Not saying for N Americas West Coasters to not prepare for a big quake, even a M8 would cause some destruction.

I'll have a look longer term, there were 5 other M7's back to 1963 when ANSS data starts.

In the 39 year period 25/05/1963 to 9/03/2002 (when the other graph starts)

as I said we have 5 M7+'s,
of those only one of each type
27-28/12/1991 aftershock (7.2, 6.7)
10/07-26/08/1977 foreshock series (6.6, 6.1, 7.1)
only other things that stand out are;
swarm from 9/03/1993 - 2/05/1993 with 5 M6's (6.1-6.4)
swarm from 25/02/1973 - 25/04/1973 with 3 M6's (6.0-6.7)
quite a few doubles (within 3 months of each other)

(click image for the w__i__d__e__r version, opens in new tab/window)

so from 1963-2014 thats 3 foreshock series and 5 aftershock series relating to M7+'s
only 50 years of history, which isn't much in the big scheme of things.
you could say there might be a 37.5% chance those last 2 quakes in 2014 could develop into something bigger.
just numbers .............. the forces that drive such things could decide to do something else completely different.

* I re-calibrated that first graph as well, so they match and are clearer. But I can't change the screen image as the 4 hours for editing are up, even though it was only 3:45hrs ago. Clicking it will bring up the altered version in another tab.

* that is, assuming the 3 month period defining foreshock and aftershock, who knows what it actually is, some say the period could be years long. If that is the case then all those prior to the 7.7 in Nov 2013 would be foreshocks!. And that is dicounting "triggering" from one Fault to another, would need to break it down into smaller areas .......... endless scenarios

One quick comment on the Northern California earthquake. I believe that the earlier 5.8M in Southern Mexico are part of the same cause. That is not to say that the Mexican quake triggered Northern California. Maybe it did. Maybe it didn't. But that is not to say that they aren't a coincidence.

Also, technically, we haven't had a 7+ in a while. The last two largest were just under 7.

What I really wanted to comment on is Kansas.

For the record, there is no lake to be found anywhere near the epicenter. Yes, there is drilling within spitting distance. No, really is a long golf shot. I could probably hit the derrick with a good drive. Actually, can drive a ball 300 yards on a good day. So, I would have to pull up a bit since it's only about 266 yards to the drilling site.

I wonder if any golf courses have wells on them. What am I saying? Of course there are.
I've been a bit behind on reading here and just notice Puterman's thread on the 5.7M injection earthquake in Oklahoma.
All I can say is I trust the data. In the end, if the numbers are corrupted, they tell the story.
What don't trust is the geologists turned politicians. Austin Holland is no better than a spin doctor.He's like a doctor paid by the cigarette companies telling us there is doubt about the cancer link.

I'm prepared to be wrong. But I knew the 5.7M was an injection quake. Because there was an injection near the epicenter. And, the fact the same thing had just happened in Arkansas. And, the scientific evidence that injection causes earthquakes.

To ignore these facts is...
ignoring facts
spinning facts
which is lying
Mr Holland is a liar.

Had to add. I must be more brain dead than I thought. I forgot about this earthquake. I even meant to check out epicenter but duh. So, speaking of duh, here's another no brainer.

Apparently, there's been five earthquakes in Ohio. Sorry, to repeat if someone else mention them. So, it's like duh, we have more earthquake and duh, they seem to be near injection wells in another state. And, it's right near Youngstown where another injection well was halted because it was causing earthquakes. So, duh.

And here's a place to compare. Ohio compared to Oklahoma. In Ohio, when there seems to be a link with injection wells and earthquakes, the officials do the responsible thing, they stop. In Oklahoma, the officials shrug their shoulders and point attention elsewhere. The funny thing, or the not so funny thing, is that in Oklahoma, there are hundred times the amount of earthquakes. And wells. Yet, they keep on keeping on.

In Ohio, public safety is directing policy and decisions. And, I wouldn't claim they are totally concerned. They're still allowing injection. But, when there's an issue, they respond.

In Oklahoma, it's criminal negligence. If you are serving someone alcohol, it is against the law to then look the other way when your drunks jump in their cars and endanger lives.

Focal parameters of the event is a thing of the automatic processing by the Hi-net.
Hypocenter distribution map in the background, is a plot the hypocenter by the Japan Meteorological Agency. (translation)

Nothing in the previous week in this area (Inland Sea, Japan) to indicate anything amiss. (gsaim NIED maps here)
Thats what I keep saying (and referring to off N California as well), it is more often locations that are NOT showing activity that have the big events.
This one should have a few aftershocks to keep me busy for a while, although the depth might effect the number of them.

If you zoom out on that 2nd map and change to Terrain view you can clearly see the Median Tectonic Line (MTL). Running east-west in Shikoku and the Kii Peninsula is the Japanese longest (over 1000 km long) fault zone consisting mainly right-lateral strike-slip faults. The MTL can be readily traced as lineaments on the ground.
The southwest Japan is conventionally divided into the outer zone (Pacific side) and the inner zone (continental side) by the MTL, although the line is not shown on USGS's Plate Boundary KML file.
This MTL was also close to the location of the 12/04/2013 Awaji Island M6.3. Both these M6's on the continental side of the MTL.
For your convenience I have created a new JapanMTL file/map showing both events mentioned. I'll have a look back and see if there are more big ones on that zone, and if there is, will add them to the file in due course.

Lucky for me i live inland by 100 miles or so.. but we felt the 6.8, im sure when we get a 8 or 9mw here, its gonna be hell on the coast if a tsunami is produced... n cali coastline and s oregon coastlines have some beautiful sights and really nice people..
But the way these "other quakes" are popping up in different spots around the gorda plate makes me think something is up too.

The little Mag 3.3 that followed 28 seconds after the 5.2, near the water's edge at Crescent City, CA, is interesting.
It was most likely triggered by the larger offshore quake. And if you look at the depth given, the depth uncertainty, and the fact that it hasn't been reviewed, it may have been on the thrust fault interface.
