Huge increase in California earthquakes has scientists baffled

The sudden increase in seismic activity on the West Coast hasn't been witnessed since 1994 -- the year that 53 quakes rumbled through the area -- the year of the deadly Northridge earthquake.

Scientists can only speculate why the earth is beginning to shuffle along the Santa Monica Mountains.

Is the recent spike in seismic activity a sign of more trembles to come? Are they part of a new sequence of tremors leading to a larger, more deadly quake? Are they a mere aftershock of the 1994 Northridge quake? Are they caused by the uptick in hydraulic fracturing going on in the region?
