A cluster of earthquakes in Oklahoma earlier this month helped push the state to 62 temblors this year alone of magnitude 3.0 or more — and 2,724 of that magnitude or more since 2010. This year is on track for a huge decline from the peak of Oklahoma's restlessness in 2015, when the state felt a ...
An earthquake measuring 4.6 hit the same province two weeks ago, damaging buildings and prompting schools to close.

When one considers earthquakes, her mind generally jumps to the West Coast. It's Earthquake Country. Shakerville. Tremble Town. But the eastern half of the United States experiences earthquakes, too. Though fewer shakers rock the region, the temblors of the east wreak greater havoc and are felt more ...
Despite the fact that this earthquake occurred close to an active convergent plate boundary, we know that this earthquake was extensional in nature. The earthquake struck very close to where a M=6.6 event occurred in 1995, which was also extensional. This suggests to us that in this location, the Pacific ...
This Temblor map shows the location of today's M=5.2 earthquake in southeastern Turkey.
