Rise in Earthquakes in the Middle East and Europe, 5th of January 2015

Commentary By:  Gordon King

I know that there have been swarms of earthquakes in the Middle East and Europe over the past year of two, but today seems significantly higher than usual.

The larger orange dots are in the high magnitude 4 range.  While these are not normally devastating earthquakes, they do represent an increase in the numbers, as we have also seen over the past couple of days in North and South Americas.
