This swarm is now 2+ weeks old (yes, 15 days), with around 800 recorded events. Anything to be concerned about?

There are a lot of them, but not more than other recorded "swarms".

Don't know the answer. But have experienced a few in SO CA during the last 50 years. My favorite occurred at a radiology meeting when in the middle of the night the Century Plaza Hotel slowly moved back and forth with loud squeaks.

I've slept through every earthquake that was strong enough to be felt where I was.

I woke up for the 1971 Sylmar quake, but it was nearly time for me to get up anyway, and besides, my bed was scooting across the floor on its newly-acquired casters.

Was awake for the 1987 Whittier quake and several quakes in the mid-1970s. Slept through a lot of very early morning quakes. Last quake I felt I thought a moving van was coming into the neighborhood - that was the quake that hit the DC area a few years back, and we're a day's ride away from DC.

I slept through dozens of quakes that could be felt by all in Japan. I was away and skiddish for a dozen or so more. One so strong that it slowed the trains down for a day. Not stopped, mind you. Nothing stops the trains in Japan.

In the U.S., I felt the tremor that shook Virginia a few years ago. Just barely. But it shook Washington DC enough to close a bunch of stuff.
