3D view of Earthquake Swarm at Ridgecrest, California
using USGS recorded earthquake magnitude and depth (meters)
Note the similarity between the Ridgecrest eq swarm and eq activity evident before the recent Kiluea eruption.
I am not saying that the Ridgecrest quakes presage an eruption, just noting a similarity in patterns.
