I think we should take these events very seriously. Popocatepetl Volcano erupted on Friday sending clouds of smoke and ash - a yellow alert has been issued and the evacuation routes are being set up. The Cascadia subduction zone has also experienced 5 small earthquakes (deep) in the last five days. So its not just the San Andreas fault. The theory that these small quakes relieve pressure is only one theory.

I'm on Vancouver Island and if we have a 'big one' some say we will just sink. Regardless, I'm taking my earthquake kit out to the car. If its in the trunk, I should be able to get to it no matter where I am. Take care.
