It has just been a while…
So I figures I’d put up another quake posting. The USGS has gone to a new “interactive” style of map and these links are flagged as obsolescent (and to be discontinued) so at some point this will just stop working ( why I had been ramping down these postings, though I’ve not figured a decent way to embed the new maps).
California is being a bit active, but the 2 week total is just 344. Likely the start of a new ramp up. I get interested when the total is near 400 and very interested when it is over 400, but that’s by definition a few days to 2 weeks into it.
New Zealand is having volcanoes. Yes, 2 of them.
“Stuff” is just being fairly interesting right now… but no Big One to hang your hat on.

As I live in California, it makes it easier for me if I keep them in the list where I can see what’s shaking near me.
Here is an alternative view of things with the fault lines highlighted:
