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.........

Well thats somewhat reassuring. If I start feeling a quake here in Upstate NY(not unheard of),I'll start worrying.

Hockey Mom, there is a fault on the border of Canada and the US near Plattsburgh, so earthquakes are a great possibility, and in fact, there was a mag. 7 earthquake in 1925, the same size as Haiti. Here is info about NY:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...rk/history.php

This site lists all kinds of info about earthquakes, faults etc by state. Almost every state in the US has some earthquake danger.

I have felt at least 2 here in NY. I probably wouldn't have known what it was but lived in Cally. I think its very hard to describe unless you feel it. A total lack of control.
