Fault lines form where there used to be none all the time. Sure the vast majority of quakes happen along existing fault lines but even those fault lines weren't always there.

It could be the rise of a new volcano. Dun DUn Dun...

" 3.7 magnitude, 6 km depth 
Socorro, New Mexico, United States"

Nothing around there but an old volcano with some ice caves. I think they are scratching thier azz, or trying to scrstch ours, and in truth are glad it was not bigger?

Since it's in the DC region, wild guesses wouldn't be far-fetched (technology, testing, underground bases or tunnel systems, etc.).

The old explanation is that it was chunks of rock breaking off from the bottom of the crust and falling into the Mantle...

Socorro gets these fairly often and the magma is only a few miles deep, we could see more action there in the near future!
