Earthquake swarm - no activity for a week

The earthquake swarm in northwest Arizona on March 28, may have run its course.  It's now been a week since the last event.   The total number of quakes recorded is in the low 60's with the largest one having a magnitude of 3.8. (shown at right. Credit, USGS).

Jeri Young who manages the AZGS seismic monitoring network will be analyzing the results of the swarm and preparing a report, but is also busy reviewing the other swarm, in southeast Arizona, near Duncan, that's had over 300 minor earthquake in recent weeks.
