The epicentre of the earthquake hit 55 miles (88km) from the town of Baganga in Davao Oriental on the island of Mindanao, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. The USGS said that the earthquake hit at 2.26pm local time (6.26pm GMT) and was magnitude 4.7. But the Filipino volcanology institute said it ...

More than 32 years ago thousands of people lost their homes after a massive earthquake in Mexico City. Today, hundreds are still living in temporary camps and others have only recently been re-housed in permanent homes. In September last year, the list of those looking for a home grew even longer ...
There's a popular belief that suggests the potential for earthquakes increases the closer the moon is to full. It goes a little like this: A full moon has the strongest tidal pull, which supposedly places more stress on the Earth's crust and increases the chances that a fault may slip. But as Nicole Mortillaro at CBC News reports, ...
Updated | A magnitude-6.3 earthquake struck the gulf of California on Friday morning. No immediate damage was reported, according to the Associated Press.

earthquakes occur every day, everywhere since the earth has existed. The main reason for earthquakes is the main tectonic borders of convergent or divergent plate's movements. Due to the convection currents in the mantle, plates move with respect to each other on the lithosphere like sailing on the sea.
The earthshaking rumblings felt in Michigan last night weren't an earthquake, but rather vibrations from a booming noise caused by a meteor whizzing overhead, according to the National earthquake Information Center (NEIC). On Tuesday evening (Jan. 16), people in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada, ...
The Sumatra earthquake isn't the only large earthquake to have occurred beneath the moon's bright glare. Both the earthquake that devastated Chile in 2010 and the Great Alaskan Earthquake in 1964 also happened on a conspicuous lunar date -- making it tempting to argue that more large earthquakes ...
The Northridge earthquake highlighted the vulnerabilities of these types of buildings and their proliferation throughout the city.

There are many people living in Southern California today who have never experienced the terror and destruction of a huge earthquake. Seismic experts have long feared this has made some apathetic about the threat in California. The Northridge quake struck just five years after another massive temblor, ...
South Reno has been shaking, ever so gently, for six days now. If you live there -- near Galena high school or where the Mount Rose Highway goes below the I-580 -- you likely haven't felt much, if anything.

A few days later, she sent me a map from the U.S. Geological Survey showing the epicenter of the earthquake. It was two blocks from our house. I rode my bike over to the location. By the looks of it, the quake had struck on the backside of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, the place where our kids had ...
The rupturing of a major earthquake in Japan was cut short by the magma chamber inside the Mount Aso volcano, new research suggests. Its steaming crater is shown above. A titanic volcano stopped a mega-sized earthquake in its tracks. In April, pent-up stress along the Futagawa-Hinagu Fault Zone in ...
The first earthquake to rattle Greece hit 25km (15 miles) northeast of Athens at 8.24pm GMT on Monday, with tremors being felt "widely across" the capital. A data map from the US Geological Survey (USGS) pinpointed the location as 4km west-northwest of Marathon, Greece - the site of the ancient battle of ...
There's a 99.7 percent chance that, in the next 30 years, an earthquake as big--or bigger--as the deadly Northridge quake will strike Los Angeles again. Those odds pushed the city of Los Angeles to pioneer the development of an earthquake early warning system that would give Angelenos up to a ...
The idea that earthquake frequency is affected by the time of year was first mooted in the 1930s. Since then, there has been a number of studies which seem to show that the notion can be backed up with evidence. In 2006, for instance, a report in the journal science found "strong seasonality" in Greenland ...
CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.6 magnitude earthquake has been recorded in southeastern Missouri. The survey says the earthquake struck Tuesday more than 2 miles (4 kilometers) southwest of Caruthersville, Missouri. No damage has been reported, but the survey ...

Huge earthquakes are not significantly influenced by the moon, a new study says. The study, conducted by U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough, looked at earthquakes of magnitude 8 or greater over the past four centuries. And a review of more than 200 earthquakes demonstrated that there ...
"[Previous studies] have found really faint statistical correlations that suggest there might be something in it -- that tidal stresses are important in influencing earthquake behaviour," Dr Quigley said. But ultimately, if anyone makes a prediction that there's going to be a magnitude-8 earthquake on a certain ...
