A Christmas Ring of Fire

On this Christmas Eve, the Pacific Plate’s “Ring of Fire” is very active.  In the past 24 hours, several earthquakes with magnitudes M>5.5 have occurred around the Pacific Rim in: Canada, Guatemala, Argentina and Columbia.  These events have all been detected in Spring, TX by #RaspberryShake Station #R5DDF operated by Texas Educational Seismic Project.  Note that different filters have been applied to the seismograms – see the red text in bottom right corner of image for information.
