seismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
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

Powerful shallow seaquake near the Chile coast – no report of injuries or damage

Earthquake Report comment :
Very powerful aftershock in the Bio Bio area in Chile. Luckily the epicenter was located in the Pacific Ocean.
The aftershock was this time very shallow at a depth of only 10 km (normally the fatershocks are at a depth of 35 km).
No news of damage or injuries have been reported by the Chile newspapers. The maximum shaking following Oficina Nacional de Emergencia del ministerio del Interior (Onemi) was IV in Conception and a few neighboring villages = light shaking.
QuakeSOS, our earthquake iPhone application has not received incoming alarms. The Mercalli values published by USGS where not experienced on site.
Another earthquake of 4.9 magnitude, creted several alarms.
