Baja California swarm: 9 earthquakes in 2 hours

April 21, 2011 – BAJA, California – 9 earthquakes have erupted along Baja California in the span of about 1 hour and 40 minutes. The quakes erupted after a 6.0 earthquake struck off the eastern coast of Japan. The Pacific plate is a kinetic force right now whose influence is extending far and wide. The largest of the tectonic plates and housing some of the most dangerous geological fractures and volcanic forces on the planet; when this plate comes alive and grinds the ocean-floor, the whole planet knows about it. Tension points include: the Caribbean plate, the Cocos plate along Central America, and Nazca (South America).
