Random Observation re: Earthquakes

There have been an awfully large number of earthquakes this year it seems. We’ve had 17 so far in 2016, which is 4 more than we had at this same time last year.

There were about 60 total quakes last year which averages out to 5 per month or more than 1 each week.

Interestingly, the years the LHC was offline there were 5-10 fewer earthquakes.

And I’m not talking about the tremors which happen frequently that we barely register. These were all 6.5 and higher, mostly in the 7-8.5 range.
