So today, I did. As I scrolled down on the USGS recent earthquake list I saw the usual NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN... that area has not stopped shaking since the big one last month. Then a new one, OAXACA, MEXICO, 4.3., not too bad. OREGON, ALASKA (not unsual), BAJA CALIFORNIA (recently it was Northern California, Central California, and Baja California several times a day), and no I am not yelling! This is how they appear in the report, each site is capitalized. Then I saw PUERTO RICO REGION. Okay, just a 2.7 Magnitude. Not a problem...until, I kept scrolling down. There must have been a misprint, I thought. 2.7, 2.8, 3.0, 3.1, 3.5 and they kept going and going and I started to lose count. I said wait a minute here. These are a lot of earthquakes. I started counting. I may have counted wrong but I counted at least 34 since eight o'clock last night. It was as if at eight someone said, "Let it rip," and it did.
34 of them. I need to count again.
In any case, I will gladly take 34 small tremors to a "big one" any day!
