    Ok is it me or is there a lot of earthquakes all of a sudden. I have a kooky friend who says the earth's axis is shifting. I'm beginning to think she's not so kooky.

    Pretty much. I'm not a seismologist, though. Many of them you don't hear about because they are centered in the ocean and may only marginally affect populated areas.

    This is so interesting. I am one that is afraid that the quakes will get bigger and badder.
    Look at Calif! IIRC, years ago people worried about a section going into the ocean.........
    Kyron, HALEIGH, ADJI & Gabriel NEEDS PRAYERS NOW TO FIND THEM!. Zahra & Jonathan in heaven
    Justice for Hailey!!!!
