I have read lately with interest that some unofficial sources have been prdicting earthquakes in this region to happen, now it has happened, something to do with unsubducted plate that runs across the US through or near there.

There have also been earthquakes in the west of the US as well lately.


Something interesting happening.

I believe it was only 1km deep, that makes it more interesting!
