Alaska M4.6 earthquake

I only post on the Alaska cluster when it breaks out of the 3's.

This is on the top of the cluster and is very deep at 142 km.  Most likely nobody felt it.  The cluster amped up after the M7ish earthquake on the lower strike-slip fault along the coast.  By the end of the year I expect another M7ish right in the armpit, since it would follow the progressing trend.  Nobody really mentions these things because the uncertainties swamp the human perception of time.  In other words, don't bet money on it!  All we can do is watch and wait.

Update:  There's been some more action in the armpit.  Always something happening....
