  • Magnitude = ? for new earthquakes until a magnitude is determined.
  • Maps show events recorded in the last 7 days with M2.5+ within the United States and adjacent areas, M4.5+ in the rest of the world.

DISCLAIMER — The maps and lists show events which have been located by the USGS and contributing agencies within the last 7 days. They should not be considered to be complete lists of all events M2.5+ in the US and adjacent areas and especially should not be considered to be complete lists of all events M4.5+ in the world. The World Data Center for Seismology, Denver (a part of the USGS National Earthquake Information Center) continues to receive data from observatories throughout the world for several months after the events occurred, and using those data, adds new events and revises existing events in later publications. For a description of these later publications and the data available, see Scientific Data.
