Australian Earthquakes and Floods


Queensland's largest earthquake, a magnitude 6, was recorded near Rockhampton in 1918, in the same year as the largest flood in that area.

Here we have a single point correlation, but I like it!  I'm obsessed with the role of water in the world of earthquakes.  I'm not saying anything more, but am waiting for the second point to fall!    .... or maybe not...

I heard an CBC interview with a fellow from the Arkansas Geological survey(?). They are seeing a co-relation with water injection and earthquakes. They are studying it!
