6/01/2015 — Volcanic Earthquake in South California — Volcano Peak shows activity

The West coast is on the move (seismically speaking).

Today (June 1) we have seen FOUR noteworthy earthquakes off the coast of Oregon near the new undersea Axial Volcano (5.9M + 5.8M + 5.5M + 4.4M)

Just before the swarm of Oregon earthquakes, there were two volcanic related earthquakes which occurred in Salton Sea at the Volcanic Buttes in South California, and in South Utah at the Markagunt Volcanic Plateau.

Now, we see that Volcano Peak in South Central California is showing signs of seismic unrest.
