Earthquake activity (historic and present) in Georgia

Last update: August 18, 2011 at 3:48 pm by By

This page has been started on August 18 2011 and will include all major historic earthquakes as well as shallow (less than 20 km depth) earthquakes 3.5 magnitude or greater which did happen in populated areas in Georgia (epicenter and/or serious shaking in Georgia) from now on.
This page will be updated manually as the intensity of every earthquake is different and as we want to focus also on weak earthquakes felt by many people.
The future of this page will be directly dependent of the participation of the people from Georgia. If you feel a serious shaking and you fill in the form below (at best with some description of what you have felt, even in your own language) the content of the form will be displayed in this page.
