Vancouver earthquake swarm: DON'T PANIC!


This is very much like a 'don't panic' article.  Why?  Are people panicking?

You can see that the available segment for a subduction earthquake is rather small, and tightly curved.  Most likely it is 2 segments, each the size of the recent Japan M9.  The whole thing would be an M9.2.  I think the big one would start with an M7 in the southern section, but who knows?  :)
