1. Moderately unusual.

It's an earthquake swarm, marked by two somewhat larger quakes at 4.5. If I lived there, I wouldn't be too alarmed, though. The smaller quakes are almost certainly aftershocks of the larger pair.

2. No. If you look at the map

You will see that this is right on a fault line.

5. I think you give Tricky Dick...

...too much credit in that regard. He's merely trying to dig his way out to hector Romney.
