Visitor Spikes (past 24 hours)

When an earthquake hits, many people start searching for information immediately. This leads to increased visitors looking for information about earthquakes in affected regions. By detecting these visits we are often able to predict that an earthquake occurred before any official data is available.

Visitor spikes of the past 24 hours are listed below. They may indicate that an earthquake occurred in the region today, but can also be caused by other reasons, like a link to our site being shared with a large audience.

Reporting Speed of Recent Earthquakes

Earthquakelist.org aims to let you know about recent earthquakes as soon as possible, ideally within minutes after they happen. We continuously work to increase our reporting speed by aggregating data from multiple natural disaster agencies every minute. Read more on our data gathering methods.

We try to be upfront about our reporting speed to give you an indication how quickly information about an earthquake you just felt might appear on our website. Our reporting speed performance of the past couple of days is displayed below.
