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

  1. Armand,

    please, restrict yourself to an English and/or French version. You can save a lot of work by not attempting to do the German version. It is really hard to understand. The words are German, but the grammar is something else. The meaning gets lost and can only be found by re-translating into English and guessing. I was looking at a number of pages on your site and they are all quite incomprehensible. I only have a little French, but I am sure that I could read your reports better with an online dictionary rather than you attempting to write German. I cannot speak for the other languages, but this German IS grotty.

    Do not work so hard. The Germans can read English.

    regards

      Joachim,
      I agree with you. We have added Google machine translations in order to serve people who cannot read English.
      We all know that they are far from good today, but hopefully they will become better soon.
      We only write in English - all the rest are Google machine translations. People can rectify online if they want, but we are not yet wikipedia :).
      Unfortunately we have not enough resources to bring real good tranlations. A couple of volunteers to rectify the Google machine language for main events like the Jpan, Christchurch and Yunnan earthquakes should resolve already the problem.
      We will withdraw the languages if we cannot find some people to make the translations better.
      I do thank you for your remark however.
