Virgin Island earthquakes - M3's like clockwork

This is really amazing.  If you look at the earthquake lists, all you see are these earthquakes.  All M3-ish.  This has to be fluid migration to get so many identical earthquakes.  A normal earthquake progression has a straight line B curve, which means it is self-similar and fractal.  Thus, you usually get a relationship where for every 10 M3's, you get an M4 and so on.

The fluid front is migrating towards the islands and they really seem to be getting deeper and deeper as they go down the slab.  Like I said before, just take this as it is, a very unusual phenomenon, and it doesn't have 'larger' implications.
