Moderate shallow earthquake in Utah-Wyoming, USA
Preliminary epicenter 29 km SW of Eden, Wyoming
the earthquake struck 40 to 50 km (30 miles from Rock Springs, Wyoming
The extremely shallow hypocenter of 0.5 miles (0.8 km) was luckily not below a city or village but in the Seedskadee National Wildlife refuge.The initial earthquake notification was deleted by USGS later.
Comment ER 1 : This confirms our feeling as the media near the epicenter did not report that they had felt an earthquake ! Strange at this magnitude.
Comment ER 2 : The other seismological agencies are still seeing ghosts and are also mentioning an earthquake in Wyoming ! We are convinced that, if USGS has deleted this earthquake, the other agencies should do the same, as every agency is highly specialized in his own country. What would have caused the wave then ? We do not know it, but something was recorded by the seismographs all over the world ! Speculation is open
Comment ER 3 (21:48 UTC) : And after a couple of hours and having deleted the first reported earthquake, USGS is reporting the Wyoming earthquake again. We have given up on it , so please check the USGS page for this particular earthquake. Finally, the earthquake was seemingly reported as Felt by 4 people.
Strong earthquake (aftershock) in Michoacan, Mexico
Preliminary data are reporting a magnitude of 5.5
Epicenter has been (preliminary) located at 7 km from Huetamo (Michoacan)
The preliminary depth is +70 km = not dangerous
This earthquake will be probably related to the much stronger Mw6.5 earthquake in the same area on April 13.
Theoretical calculations of USGS are expecting that 2.6 million people have felt a light shaking. 33.2 million a weak shaking.
Earthquake-Report.com calls this earthquake harmless based on the fact of the depth and the impact of the much stronger earthquake from April 13.
Moderate shallow earthquake near the coast of Turkey
ONLY 50 km from Izmir, an area with a lot of tourists
The epicenter is located be right on the coastline, very close to Foca a city with 16,000 inhabitants.
A lot of tourists in Kusadasi will have felt this earthquake.
We do not expect this earthquake to be damaging but are not excluding cracks in walls etc.
Izmir, a city at only 50 km from the epicenter has a population of 2.5 million !
The depth of the hypocenter has been located at 12 km by EMSC, very shallow.
USGS has decreased his initial depth to an extremely shallow value of 5.9 km.
We invite people who have felt this earthquake, to share their experience below.
Aşağıda kendi deneyimlerini paylaşmak için, bu deprem hissettim insanlar davet ediyoruz. Türkçe ve yazmak için bekliyoruz.
Update 16:36 UTC : As could be expected, the earthquake was felt by mill!ions of people. So far and probably final, no damage or injuries have been reported. The local Turkish Kandilly Observatory has reported a depth of 12 km vs 5.9 from USGS. The focal depth of the earthquake is extremely important in earthquake reporting. Epicenter has been located in the sea at 9 km from Foca.
Strong aftershock in Sulawesi, Indonesia
Although the 5.5 Magnitude can be considered as strong in our terms, the depth is weakening the impact and we expect no serious damage or injuries . People in Sulawesi are experiencing a lot of earthquakes and their houses are build from material (mostly wood and bamboo) which is very efficient against earthquakes. Brick and concrete are mostly used in bigger cities only. USGS expects 1000 people to have experienced a MMI VI strong shaking. 43,000 people a moderate shaking and 562,000 people a light shaking. The epicenter area is the same then last week Mw5.8 earthquake. Click here for our in-depth article. During this Mw5.8 earthquake, 51 houses were damaged and 2 people injured. Hypocenter depth was reported as 9.9 km versus 40 km today, a lot deeper and thus less dangerous.
Update : BMKG, the local Indonesian seismological agency reports a Magnitude of 5.3 at a depth of 10 km. The epicenter is following BMKG located offshore, a whole lot of difference. We trust BMKG as a very good seismological agency and in this case working with their own instruments (closest to the epicenter)

Useful 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.
