It's not that strange for the South Island of New Zealand, after all that is how the place was created

You are saying they have 10 quakes from Mag 4 to 7 every day all year round ??

no not daily, but they are prone to earthquakes and aftershocks.
the place was formed by earthquake activity and you can see just how rugged the place is if you visit. as far as land masses go it's very young and still very active. but you are right it will probably be a while until they experiance something like that again. I am in Australia ane we had a tidal wave alert from it, never know that to happen before

No nothing worth mentioning, by the time it go to our shores it was 20cm high

your part of the world would be fairly active with quakes and volcano's wouldn't it?

No quakes here in Norway , when the first one hits, I'm outa here.

There have been a few big ones out in the ocean in the north atlantic, and for some 'sure just another coincidence' they had a 'strike' on the seismo-boats they had out ther, followed by them being taken out of service.

All to coincidental, and since then , no more news about it ..

Exactly. I know there were earthquakes near sweeden too, in february if im not mistaking..

Plus the fireballs we had, Im guessing it will get more intense this year, and to me, that would prove we are getting closer to the galactic plane,as the astroid belt down there gets denser and denser as we go down into it..

Just myown thought on things, will see if it hets worse..
