This earthquake list covers minor and major earthquakes in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases Google Satellite Map links to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT)
The page is regularly updated to add new earthquakes.
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

27,000 Indonesians still living in evacuation camps hiding for continuous eruptions of Mt Sinabung volcano

Wikipedia picture of a dormant Mount Sinabung volcano

16 days after the first eruption of 400 year dormant Mount Sinabung volcano,  nearly 27,000 Sumatrian’s are still living in 23 evacuation camps at a safe distance of the volcano.

We recommend to read the article of the Jakarta Globe on this issue.
Here is an excerpt and a link to the complete article.

Sinabung Evacuees Mark Holiday Away From Homes, but Thankful to Be Safe

While Muslims in the rest of the country marked a fairly incident-free Idul Fitri on Friday, in North Sumatra’s Karo district the holiday was welcomed in evacuation camps in the shadow of the still-erupting Mount Sinabung.

The volcano, which began erupting on Aug. 29 after lying dormant for 400 years, has driven 27,000 people from their homes and into 23 evacuation camps.

North Sumatra is predominantly Christian, and while celebrations for Idul Fitri were relatively low key, several of the Muslim evacuees said the other people at the camps had shared the day with them.

“This is the first time our village has had to celebrate Idul Fitri outside the village,” Siti Hafsah Ginting, from Sigarang-garang village, said on Saturday. Siti is one of 2,500 evacuees currently staying at the Sempakata camp.

The mother of four said the realization that she had left her home behind, along with her family’s belongings, livestock and farm, made this a particularly sad holiday.

Earthquake Report comment :
The epicenter of this earthquake was in the middle of the Cuzco, Lake Titicaca area. With a depth of 177 km a lot of people should have felt a very weak tremor.  As it happened in the middle of the Peruvian and Bolivian night, most people will have slept through it.
GDACS has issued a GREEN earthquake report shortly after the earthquake occurred = very limited chance on damage and/or injuries.
Closest villages are Carmi and Santa Rosa.
