	The location of this quake is very interesting. I looked at the history
display and noticed very few previous quakes in the area. The shallow
ridges on the ocean floor look sort of like spreading ridges. I didn't
think that spreading centers caused large earthquakes such as this. I
wonder if we are seeing the start of a volcano?
