The earthquake in Alaska apparently only caused minor damage to property, but also did some damage to the pipeline, which the powers that be are repairing ASAP. This report also mentions that the quake caused hundreds of related shocks in the Yellowstone area. This could be interesting, as the Yellowstone area is known to be a supervolcano.

Also of interest are two small quakes in Kansas. Could these be related to the New Madrid fault system? They are some distance from New Madrid, but since Alaska caused quakes in Yellowstone, it is feasible that Kansas could be the precursor of something larger at new Madrid.
