    Now we are seeing earthquakes, double striking and causing ripple effects… more frequent now, like labor pains

    I wonder if this was caused by the two strong solar flares that happened a few days ago?

    Two more earthquakes in the Aleutian Islands, 5.8 and 5.7 at right before 5:00 pm UTC. I suppose these may be aftershocks?

    Isn’t this in a sparsely populated area? As would be a large portion of Alaska I guess.

    Interesting… One of my earthquake apps say there were two 6.0s within seconds of each other, followed by a 5.8 and a 5.7, but on the usgs site, there are only the 6.0 and 5.8. Has anyone else observed this?

    Looks like we may see a major earthquake on the west coast soon. I’ve noticed the intensity and magnitude picking up from Baja Mexico to Oregon lately.
