Multiple 5+ earthquakes on the western edge of the Ring of Fire
USGS/vanity ^ | 6/1/08 | null and void

Posted on 06/01/2008 5:01:00 PM PDT by null and void

Eight in past week, two of which were in the past hour. Probably just a statistical artifact, but something for the rest of us living on other parts of the Ring of Fire to keep in mind...

Hopefully all this tectonic shifting will mean an ocean of crude oil is being formed somewhere under the US.

The USGC will remove events that weren't actually earthquakes...

There are an average of 4 5.0+ earthquakes a day, most of which will be on the “Ring of Fire.”

I don’t see anything remotely unusual.

Had the same thought as you when the USGS pinged my e mail with all these events.

All is quite here on the PNW coast.

It’s always a good day to be aware of how earthquake proof your stuff is at any given moment...

Here ya go:

The lock upon my garden gate’s a snail, that’s what it is
The lock upon my garden gate’s a snail, that’s what it is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find the butterfly within

First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain

Oh, Juanita, oh, Juanita
Oh, Juanita I call your name
Oh, the snow will be a blinding sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside

The lock upon my garden gate’s a snail, that’s what it is
The lock upon my garden gate’s a snail, that’s what it is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain then there is no mountain, then there is

{Repeat to fade}

I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia and I have earthquake insurance. It’s somewhat expensive, but I’m told that the bedrock here is quite solid, rendering a small earthquake into a damaging one. We last had one here in the 1970’s. I remember it because it woke me up that night.

I've read all the responses and see that no one has posted either of the required responses, so in the interests of 'accuracy'; "It is Bush's Fault" OR "Global Warming".

The first requires no clarification, the second is because the melting ice puts more water in the ocean which equals more weight on the tectonic plates, thus earthquakes. I'm expecting a call from the Noble Committee any day now.

It's been REAL quiet in California the last couple days.

Maybe too quiet.

I've been noticing, and wondering, about this phenomena.

I hope there is not some big event about to happen.
