2. I was wondering about the region too...
It isn't a very common area for Quakes... then again, I live in the west near the Ring of Fire, so it is common to *me*
Onbe of the first things I thought of when it happened was "uh-oh" that's not in a good place...! It is one thing to see the fluxuations between the eastern & western pacific's movements...but the eastern seaboard and carribean are places where the earth "shouldn't" move. This also makes me think about a recent post here regarding the discovery of the magnetic pole moving at a very fast rate of speed, like 40 meters per year?

I am going to look for maps of the region's faults...because I have a sneaking suspicion this could also trigger something in the eastern US..isn't that called the New Madrid fault ...?

I think the Earth is waking up from a loong sleep, and she's pissed!
