I am sure that you are concerned about loved ones elsewhere and about your own safety. For what it's worth, from a purely observational standpoint, there does seem to be a specific worldwide clusters of substantial earthquates. As I write this, I am especially noting a 5.6 quake in Venezuela. Here is a great map for you for quakes over 4.0: http://www.iris.edu/seismon/
If you'd like to see ALL earthquakes (especially those small but numerous 'pesky' ones in CA, Alaska and Hawaii) I suggest this website: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php
With these tools, we can use science to determine what's happening and maybe even see 'trends' for these enormous acts of God.
