I don't care what the USGS says. Earthquakes are on the rise.
They also seem to be inching closer to the Wasatch Front, where the "locked" Wasatch Fault is capable of a tremendous shaker.
From Mexico, to California, to Yellowstone to the N.E. corner of Utah, there have been some strong quakes nearby.
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a significant quake soon along the Wasatch Fault.
Also, with the volcano in Iceland it illustrates how fragile the modern world is. This rather small volcano in a key location disrupted air travel significantly.
One good earthquake in an area could smack it back into the 18th Century, with no power, water, sewer or transportation.
