Although in the UK we regard anything in the region of 3.0 on the Richter as newsworthy, for many geographies that wouldn’t even raise an eyebrow!

To put this into context, here are the earthquakes >5.0  even in the last 7 days  – and remember the Richter scale is logarithmic (see below) so each whole number represents 31 times as much energy as the one before!  Just use the map controls to zoom out to see the global map, and press “F” to see the fault lines and “P” for the Tectonic plates
