Changed magnitudes are marked with ↓ or ↑ and the details are in italics with the changed value e.g. 6.0 in bold. {!}=Currently only Mag 6+ on one provider where other providers are under Mag 6. This listing page is NOT an instant update page and it could be a week or more before details appear here especially if the initial determination is uncertain. Normally this list is updated once a week on a Sunday. You will however find any ‘missing’ quake in the blog posts. [→] indicates this opens in a new tab/page.

MY APOLOGIES TO EVERYONE FOR THE SERIOUS OUTDATED STATE OF THIS PAGE. I AM SUFFERING FROM SEVERAL MONTHS OF MAJOR COMPUTER PROBLEMS AND FAILURES ON ALL MY SYSTEMS. I HOPE TO HAVE THIS PAGE UPDATED IN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO.
