It’s worth noting that the TWO LARGEST earthquakes in the past 15 years have both occured in the last 3 months and have been within a few hundred kilometres of each other. In fact they dwarf all the other quakes by comparison.

I check it out daily and for the past week, there had been very little seismic activity on the west coast of Sumatera – which is unusual. Seems the build up was too much.

Next time it gets quiet, better run for the hills.
