There certainly hasn’t been a lack of seismic activity so far in 2020. Just a few days ago, I wrote about the horrific earthquake swarm that Puerto Rico is currently experiencing. More than 1,000 earthquakes have rattled Puerto Rico so far, and as you will see below, it was just hit by another very large earthquake.
For years, scientists have been warning us that the San Andreas fault is “locked and loaded” and could potentially “unzip all at once”. Of course, the two large earthquakes that we just witnessed in southern California were not along the San Andreas fault, and we should be extremely thankful for that.
