Where can I find current earthquake lists and maps for the world or for a specific area?
The Earthquake Hazards Program Latest Earthquakes Map displays earthquakes in near-realtime and up to the past 30 days of earthquakes. The interface includes three panels: a list of earthquakes, a map, and a settings/options panel. You can pan and zoom the map to view specific areas. Click on an event on the list or map for additional information and a link to the event page with all the details for the earthquake. The settings panel allows you to customize the interface, and then you can bookmark the resulting URL for future visits.
How fast does the earthquake information get posted to the web site, get sent out via the Earthquake Notification Service (ENS), ATOM feeds, etc?
Can I get on a list to receive an email message when there is an earthquake? How do I sign up for earthquake notifications? Are there any Feeds I can subscribe to?
