I think what Leo is saying is that although we HOT, we COOL!

I still like my "stubborn pimple" analogy better.

I figured that's what you meant. I was just trying to convey to TATT that our earthquakes aren't DIRECTLY affected by Plate Tectonics. As an end result, as you explained, yes. Directly and immediately, no. It's strictly volcanic. That is all.

Yup, still waiting with party hats and decorations.
San Andreas aside, the real fault seismologists are concerned about that they discovered is actually off the coast of Washington, and predicted to take out Vancouver, Washington State and Northern Oregon, leaving California intact. Nice try.

Awesome. A fault right through Waikele. Shall we name the islands East and West Oahu? Careful what you fantasize about. Nice try again.

Let the truth be known, the earthquake was my fault. I simply fell out of bed and hit the floor.

I felt it over here in Kaneohe. One sharp jolt, followed right away by two or three little shakes. Pau. No harm, no foul.
