There have been a large number of earthquakes in and around the Reno, NV area over the last month or so. They have not been very powerful thus far, but are considered unusual especially due to their frequency.
At the same time, scientists have been monitoring another atypical spat of earthquakes off the coast of Oregon. In fact, seismologists have never witnessed such a large number (over 600) of quakes in this region before.
Are these two phenomena in any way related? Could this be the prelude to a larger event in the near future? I certainly hope not. Let's hope this is just the earth's way of scratching its crotch.
