Hi all

After today Jawa earthquake swarm, that had a intal earthquake of a mag
7.7 I think there might have been large change in the earth crust
pressure. The area that I have in mind is south Sumatra, where massive
energy buildup has been taking place becose of the mag 9.3 earthquake in
2004. But the south Sumatra subduction zone is on the same faultline as
South of Jawa is. The question is, is the current activite a sign about
more large earthquakes in that area.

But over the past months, there have been mag 5> earthquakes in south
part of Sumatra, but something simular did happen in northen part of
Sumatra before the mag 9.3 earthquake.

This is just my thugh on this, but the data that is appearing now don't
show any good sign in my opinion.
