Is it just me... or is the major activity moving north? First Chile, now Nicaragua. if it keeps moving north...LA or the Pacific NW? Lots of faults to chose from...take your pick.

It was Nicaragua where Roberto Clemente was headed to deliver aid after an earthquake when his plane went down in ‘72.

If you really want to see it all in one glance, to determine if the 'pattern' you suggest exists, try this.

Go to link, download the program (takes 2 seconds) then just run it. See Earthquake activity WORLDWIDE at a glance. Change the timespan or Magnitude. Spin the Earth round, zoom in or out. Dozens of other features. AND IT's FREE.

There were a few off the coast of California last month. But the politicians told us it was due to fracking.

How much aid will Russia send? The US will send much more and Zero will still let the Russians is. He is the worst president ever.

Thats a good sign!

I didnt get the locale in relationship to population centers.

I suspect that there may not be many living that close to the quakes epicenter

Yes, that can be a bigee. The last big one caused the Mississippi to flow northward, and created Reelfoot lake in NW Tennessee.

Yes, if that caldera blows, predictions are that it could
affect much of America, east of Yellowstone.

April 18, 1906 was the BIG one in San Fran. We have a full moon coming up on April 15. The big ones do have a penchant for hitting within three days of a full moon.

Just Sayin’

Understand Ohio, I believe, was granted authorization by a judge to stop fracking there because of a recent tremor. Good grief.

Yes the full moon is going to be an interesting one this month.

The guy who accurately predicted the World Series Quake has mentioned this from time to time.

On April 11, we don’t have much time to wait.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, which you may already know, that this next full moon is the first of four blood moons.

Fiery...

Another take on the song - Love is a very good thing, but it leaves a bathtub ring..
