Major Unrest underway -- Large 7.0M earthquake strikes Peru -- 6.0M hits California

Not the time of year we might expect this type of upswing in earthquake activity....this current run seems to be focused on the eastern edge of the "Ring of Fire".

Full website post here, plus link to monitor earthquakes nationally and internationally:
A large 7.0M earthquake has struck Peru, inland along the Andes mountains. This comes on top of the previous activity in California today, as well as the 6.7 magnitude in Chile yesterday.
Overall, seismic unrest is showing globally, including the eruption in Iceland -- now is a good time to dust off those earthquake preparedness plans.

And because you can never have too much info on the earth cracking up...
