The West coast of the United States has been lucky so far, in that we have not seen one of these large earthquakes hit home as of yet. Well that all may be changing. This morning at 8:57am local time, amagnitude 5.9 earthquake occurred 15 mile S SW of Sand Point, Alaska. One of the largest quakes recorded in the region in years. Yesterday a 4.5 magnitude earthquake was recorded near Keeler, CA. While this is not an unusually large earthquake for the region, these quakes are occurring in a pecular pattern.
