As usual(ish), when people post seismic information, I try to remember to post a link to the USGS Earthquake Map. It’s worldwide, up-to-date, and a darn useful thing to have around if you’re looking for updates on seismic activity.

So here it is. You can change the parameters at the top right. It’s set to show earthquakes within the past day of 2.5+ on the Richter.

“Bárðarbunga” a.k.a. “The Great Sneeze”?
Could it be that Gaia has a cold with a bit of a fever?
