Map of Recent Quakes

I looked up our area on the earthqake map at High Sensitivity Seismograph Network Japan, and found something interesting

The black arrow points to my house! Click to see it larger
That is a lot of quakes. Don't worry, the red doesn't mean big, it means shallow. Big quakes have big circles.


  1. Here is an animation plotting the bigger earthquakes onto a map of google earth. One second of video=one hour in real time...hope your house has stopped shaking!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xylDxj6-9dY

  2. Thanks Sean!
    Another friend of mine also sent me this link:
    Once the timer gets to 14:46 March 11, you can see the fireworks.
