Historic Earthquakes in the United States and Its Territories

We're transitioning to a new system. For earthquakes more recent than what you see on this list, please go to the transitional webpage.

The lists and statistics on this webpage have not been updated since December 2012. Many of these will be updated and available when we have completed the transition into the new earthquake database. We hope to provide this sometime in 2015.

Sorted by Date

Selected earthquakes of general historic interest.
All earthquake dates are UTC, not local time.
