Alaska M4.9 earthquake

I did say they would have to be over M5, and in the right zone.  This was almost there.  I don't really count the outer zone, but I am very fascinated on what is happening near the armpit.  The earthquakes here are operating at full fractal, which means a straight line log-log plot of frequency - mag (which is log).  That means there are x number of M3's for an M4, and x again for M4 to M5, etc.  I am still expecting the last M7.5 on the right strike-slip track to hit the armpit by the end of this year.

*as always, the uncertainties always swamp any human concept of time.  :)
