Earthquakes list August 10, 2010

Useful 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 page is regularly updated to add new quakes.
Minor earthquakes are earthquakes without or with little damage risk.  In most cases these earthquakes have a Magnitude smaller than M 5.0 OR earthquakes with an hypocenter (depth) of more than 100 km OR earthquakes up to M 5.9 with an epicenter far away from populated areas.
The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)
