Today, there have been a renewed series of small to moderate, mainly in the 3 mag range, just south of Mexicali, in Baja California. These quakes are all in one particular spot, and a few weeks ago, the same thing happened in the same area. This area is where the 7.2 mag 2010 Easter Earthquake happened. I have been feeling the ground move, lately. These little quakes are apparent, and there are a lot of them. I cannot place any meaning to them, but they are worth taking a look at to try and find the nature of them.

The area is in the midst of a rifting zone, where the tectonic plates are pulling apart. It's an area of volcanism and frequent earthquakes. It is a part of the mid-pacific range, and extends up through eastern California.
