  • Yachats - Didn't last long, maybe 5-7 seconds. Only one mirror seemed to shake. It has a glass beer boot on it that shook and moved across the shelf that is under the mirror. I have felt stronger here, seems like this was the first shaking like this in couple years. Normally they start a little lighter and get more intense. This was just 5 seconds of sudden intensity. No dammage at all, and I highly doubt most people felt it. I seem to be a little more sensitive tothem
  • Corvallis, Oregon - I thought I felt (heard) a slight earthquake yesterday. I didn't feel it, but I heard the familiar sound.

    seismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important 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 a Google Satellite Map 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 multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news.

      Am I correct in counting 183 total earthquakes yesterday?? Is this normal seismic activity for our earth on a daily basis?? I’m guessing this number of quakes is much higher than normal but I think what my question is why?? Are we on the cusp of a major plate shift or could this be the beginnings of another pole shift?? I don’t mean we’re going to lose gravity or anything like that but I’m just trying to find an answer?? Anyone with info that can help me understand this, I would love to hear your input. Thanks. :)

      • Armand Vervaeck says:

        Angela, sometimes almost nothing happens but quakes which are otherwise never related are getting attention when they occur while a massive one occurred. The Japan quakes are fairly normal, this is going on a long time. The only relation we are seeing is the Mexican quakes . This is a fierce work for scientists “what if a moves, will B move also, but all this is gigantically difficult. With GPS scienytist have more data but relations are often never found. We have to trust them that they will find clues for all this in the future.

      • angela says:

        Thank you for your insight. It just seemed to be an awful lot of seismic activity during the course of a 24 hour period of time. And being that there were several quite large quakes and aftershocks, it makes one wonder what is going on with mother earth. It looks like I have something new to study. Thank you, again, for your insight. Have a blessed day. :)
