Nothing significant to report


Earthquakes over magnitude 3.0 that have hit the headlines around the world in the last month. (Please note that because of the proven effects of "fracking" some of the earthquakes reported across the lower 48 states of the USA may be from human rather than tectonic origin).

All magnitudes expressed use the Richter Scale unless otherwise stated. All events are dated by local time.

Ten earthquakes hit the Lower 48 this week.
