It's kind of scary. We experienced the big 5.8 one last summer, and regular aftershocks for about a year after.

Another one a couple of hours ago ..... M6.5 - 30km WSW of Champerico, Guatemala.

CNN :

A 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck this afternoon in the Pacific off the western coast of Guatemala, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Striking about 17 miles (27 kilometers) below sea level, the tremor was centered about 19 miles west-southwest of Champerico, Guatemala, and 115 miles from the capital, Guatemala City. The quake was not far from southern Mexico, with the USGS reporting it was 27 miles south-southeast of the border community of Suchiate, Mexico.

Earlier Sunday, the U.S. agency had said it was a 6.2-magnitude tremor, but later revised the report with the higher magnitude. It was followed by a number of significant aftershocks with magnitudes as strong as 5.0.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that “based on all available data, a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected.”

Sunday’s earthquake is the second major one in four days to strike the region.

Last Wednesday morning, a powerful 7.4-magnitude tremor struck in the same area — about 22 miles from the coastal town of Champerico — at a depth of 15 miles. At least 52 people were killed in its aftermath, according to President Otto Perez Molina. Hundreds more were injured, while more than 2,200 homes were damaged.

Another one today.......

Magnitude 6.4 earthquake strikes Gulf of Alaska

JUNEAU, Alaska - An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4 struck in the Gulf of Alaska on Monday - the largest quake in that region in nearly 25 years.

No tsunami warnings were issued, and there were no reports of damage despite tremors being felt across a large part of southern Alaska. A series of aftershocks also were recorded.

Natasha Ruppert, a seismologist with the Alaska Earthquake Information Center, said this was the largest earthquake in the region since 1987 and 1988, when quakes of magnitude 7.8 and 7.7, respectively, struck.

She said Monday's earthquake wasn't of the kind that would generate tsunami concerns, as it was relatively small and involved two sides of the fault moving horizontally - not vertical motion. Ruppert said the earthquake was not directly related to the magnitude 7.7 quake that struck off the west coast of Canada last month, though she said the two are in same plate boundary system.

Monday's quake struck about 150 miles south of Cape Yakataga, and about 180 miles from Yakutat. People reported feeling it from as far away as Sitka, Juneau and Anchorage, which is nearly 340 miles away, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Louise Petersen, who works at the Glass Door Bar in Yakutat, said items on the wall moved a little, but the quake didn't feel very strong.

She said it wasn't unusual, "but we don't get them too often."

It's something you get used to living with out here. Like hurricanes in the south or tornadoes in the midwest.

Can't say I have felt any recent seismic activity. Half the earthquakes they mention on the news I never feel.

 7.0-magnitude earthquake has been reported off the west coast of Nicaragua in Central America, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake comes less than an hour after the eye of Hurricane Otto slammed into the east coast of southern Nicara

It seems Mother Earth has turned terroristic on our asses . Definitely a different type of Jihad... im surprised they're  not blaming the Bin Laden weather machine  for all this chaos.

The earthquake swarm in Yellowstone National Park has reached epic proportions as experts called it one of the longest and largest on record with 2,357 earthquakes recorded from June through August 30,

Now, the neighboring state of Idaho is also shaking, with an earthquake swarm that began Saturday evening and continued into Tuesday.

The Idaho State Journal reported 101 earthquakes in the southeastern part of the state, all near Soda Springs in Caribou County, which is less than 170 miles from Yellowstone.

I'm in CT and have experienced a few tremors over the years surprisingly.  The one that hit the DC area about 10 years ago and did extensive damage to the Washington Monument and one back in the 80's which woke me up overnight.  No damage in our area but enough to feel the shaking.  There are plenty of fault lines outside of the western USA.  One of the most temperamental may me the San Madras Fault in the Central USA in the St. Louis and Memphis regions.  I hope they don't get a big one as it would be a loss of the some of the country's best BBQ cuisine!  We can't lose Graceland or Sun Studios either as I've visited both twice!
