Historic World Earthquakes

We're transitioning to a new system, so this webpage is being phased out and is no longer maintained as of 04/12. A replacement is under development.

Sorted by Magnitude

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.

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

Includes United States earthquakes.
