After a period of relative quiet, it seems like there is a sudden increase of the amount of earthquakes reported. August 19th there was a 6.9 earthquake affecting Indonesia. August 21st, Grenada, Venezuela, and Trinidad and Tobago experiences a 7.3 magnitude earthquake. And on August 22nd, a 6.2 quake hit Oregon. So many back to back, surely it is a warning sign that “the big one” is soon to affect us all. “Not so,” says the United States Geological Survey. According to a statement released by the government organization, “Neither an increase or decrease worldwide is a positive indication that a large earthquake is imminent.” In fact, on any given day there can be up to 50 earthquakes a day worldwide.
