    The magnitude earthquake is among a handful of stronger tremors since the shaking began this spring. Several smaller quakes preceded and followed it this weekend, including a magnitude   According to the @USGS database, the magnitude earthquake near Sparta, NC this morning is the second strongest earthquake to occur in NC .

    Based on this method, the earthquake in question was at least magnitude , but more likely was 5 This magnitude 8 event of B.C. appears to be the largest yet documented on the Dead Sea transform fault zone during the last four millennia. The Dead Sea transform fault likely ruptured along more than kilometers as the ground shook. An earthquake of magnitude had hit the national capital in Another quake of magnitude was recorded in the city in , according to official data. The major quakes recorded near the national capital were at Bulandshahr of magnitude on Octo, and at Mordabad of magnitude on Aug

    An earthquake of magnitude on the Richter scale hit km Southeast of Singapore on Tuesday. According to the National Centre for Seismology, the earthquake struck at am.   A magnitude earthquake struck near the border between North Carolina and Virginia on Sunday morning. The earthquake was reported near Sparta, North Carolina, at a.m., according to the USGS. There are no reports of damage or injuries. The .

The quake was felt. Earthquake - Earthquake - Earthquake magnitude: Earthquake magnitude is a measure of the “size,” or amplitude, of the seismic waves generated by an earthquake source and recorded by seismographs.

(The types and nature of these waves are described in the section Seismic waves.) Because the size of earthquakes varies enormously, it is necessary for purposes of comparison to compress the. Thus, stronger rock material, or a larger area, or more movement in an earthquake will all contribute to produce a larger magnitude.

Then, Moment Magnitude (M W) = 2/3 log 10 (M O) - See the Magnitude Types Table (below)for a summary of types, magnitude ranges, distance ranges, equations, and a brief description of each.

A magnitude earthquake was reported in Sparta, North Carolina and felt across the Triangle at around 8 a.m. This is the largest earthquake North Carolina has seen since That earthquake.

Tremors ofand magnitude rocked the island during the night of Dec. 28, and continued for weeks. On Jan. 6, a magnitude earthquake shook southwestern Puerto Rico. A light magnitude earthquake shook western Greece this morning at am local time.

Its epicenter was between the popular holiday island of Zakynthos (20 km to the SE) and the Peloponnese and its depth at approx. It was widely felt in Zakynthos, especially in the coastal areas, as a light to mild shaking lasting a few seconds. A magnitude eastern U.S. earthquake usually can be felt as far as km ( mi) from where it occurred, and sometimes causes damage as far.

Geological Survey. The earthquake occurred less. The largest earthquakes on these scales range up to about magnitude 8 or 9. Using sensitive instruments, seismologists have detected earthquakes as small as magnitude –3 or –4. An earthquake with magnitude of –3 is 1, times smaller than magnitude 0, the smallest number on the original Richter scale.

As the events listed here occurred before routine instrumental recordings, they rely mainly on the analysis of written sources. There is often significant uncertainty in location and magnitude and sometimes date for each earthquake.

Earthquake, any sudden shaking of the ground caused by the passage of seismic waves through Earth’s rocks. Earthquakes occur most often along geologic faults, narrow zones where rock masses move in relation to one another. Learn more about the causes and effects of earthquakes in this article.
