Metaphysical sources have been saying the Pacific Rim will have increasing activity the next several years. I hope no one has been severely injured.

@konane, amazingly, no reports of serious injuries. You are definitely right about the Pacific Rim.

@four4me, yes, we'll probably see a flurry of 6.0+ in the next few days. South America may see increased activity during this period. Watch period is extended until Wed.
