Long day for me today. Even cutting and pasting is proving to be a challenge so just a quick summary.

4 notable events. All in the 3.0 - 3.4 magnitude range. The three events to the north were at a depth of 33, 34 & 35 kilometers. The one of the SE coast was 135 kilometers - to deep to be felt by most.

The Puerto Rico trench in the Mona Passage and the clip-strike fault north of Hispaniola are both capable of producing incredibly strong quakes in the range of 8.0 - 9.0 in magnitude at anytime. The increased activity NE and E of Hispaniola continues but I am not seeing anything that leads me to believe the end is near. Most of these quakes are quite deep and the chances of 35 KM of seabed rising or falling is pretty remote. Lateral slips at these depths probably won't cause catastrophic S-waves. While the increase in tempo and overall frequency of these small jolts is noteworthy and well worth keeping an eye on for any trends that could develop, I don't see any reason to worry as I contemplate placing my head on my pillow tonight.
