Between 1973 and 2008, there was an average of 24 earthquakes with a magnitude of 3.0 or higher each year. The rate increased steadily in the relatively short amount of time between 2009 and 2015, averaging 318 earthquakes per year. This peaked just last year, with 1,010 earthquakes. So far this year, there have been 226 earthquakes of a magnitude of 3.0 or larger in the central U.S. as of mid-March.

I have to wonder if these man-made quakes are tweaking the New Madrid fault and increasing the chances that it will cut loose with a real monster quake.

Default El Popo blows his top

El Popo explosion strongest in 3 years
Quote:
There was an explosion described as “relatively strong” at the Popocatépetl volcano last night, sending a two-kilometer column of ash skyward and shooting incandescent fragments to a distance of up to 3.5 kilometers.

The fragments ignited bush fires on the volcano’s upper slopes, reported Volcano Discovery.

An overnight flight Saturday by officials aboard a helicopter found that a new lava dome that had formed in January was gone, destroyed by a recent series of explosions. The dome contained an estimated 2 million cubic meters of lava.

Initial report on the Beeb: injuries, some serious, but no deaths known yet. Significant property damage but building regs. kept it to a minimum.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...005j32#general looks like it's been upgraded now to a 7.8 it was said to be 7.4 earlier I thought.

Upshot is a 4.5 just before 22:00 local, followed within 3 miniutes by back-to-back 4.4s, and a 2.8 13 minutes later.

I felt the 4.5 and the 4.4s but not the 2.8. If the shaking had not stopped right away, I might have gotten scared.
