Earthquake swarm rocks New Year's Eve in California town   CNN - January 2, 2016
Dozens of earthquakes helped bring in the New Year around Brawley, California, but they are more of a curiosity than a concern, experts tell CNN. Caltech seismologist Lucy Jones said earthquake "swarms" aren't unexpected around Brawley -- there also was a swarm in 2012 -- because the fault-riddled region called the Brawley Seismic Zone lies between the large San Andreas Fault and the Imperial Fault. More than 100 earthquakes have hit the region this weekend, but most are too weak, under 2.5 magnitude, to be noticed by people, said Donyelle Davis, spokeswoman for the United States Geological Survey. Weak quakes can trigger a bigger, more dangerous quake, but Brawley, a city of about 25,000 people near the Mexican border, is too far from the San Andreas Fault for that to be much of a risk, Davis said.

Earthquakes shake Sonoma County, Mammoth Lakes, Central Coast   LA Times - December 14, 2016

Several earthquakes hit various parts of California in the last 12 hours, including a swarm of minor temblors in the Mammoth Lakes area and a 5.0 magnitude quake in Sonoma County. Mammoth Lakes, which has a history of seismic activity, recorded a 3.9 magnitude temblor Tuesday night that was followed by scores of aftershocks. The quake was felt in the area but no damage was reported. A 3.9 quake was recorded in the town of Templeton on the Central Coast around 4 a.m. It was followed by a 3.0 aftershock. Then, a 5.0 magnitude quake was recorded in Cloverdale in Sonoma County. No damage was immediately reported from that quake, but it was felt across the north San Francisco Bay and as far south as the San Francisco peninsula, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A 3.0 aftershock followed.

  Powerful earthquake strikes Papua New Guinea, tsunami warning issued   Mirror - December 17, 2016
A magnitude 8.0 earthquake has struck off the east coast of Papua New Guinea, according to reports. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre has said widespread hazardous tsunami waves are possible. Earthquake-Report.com says that although massive earthquakes are very common in PNG, there are fears for tsunami waves potentially metres in height. According to the Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre there is no tsunami threat to the Australian mainland, islands or territories. However, hazardous tsunami waves could hit coastal areas of Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Indonesia, Nauru and other islands in the three hours following the quake, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said. The quake occurred 60 kilometres east of Taron on New Ireland island at 9.51pm AEDT on Saturday at a depth of 73.4 kilometres.

  Tsunami threat over after 7.8 quake near Solomon Islands   CNN - December 8, 2016

A 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit close to the Solomon Islands early Friday, putting that nation and others in the South Pacific on alert for a tsunami. "Based on all available data, a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas, even far from the epicenter. An investigation is underway to determine if there is a tsunami threat to Hawaii," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. The earthquake hit less than 30 kilometers off the island of Makira - and 70 kilometers southwest of the city of Kirakira on that island -- about 4:38 a.m. local time Friday (12:38 p.m. ET Thursday).

  6.5-magnitude earthquake off the coast of California   CNN - December 8, 2016

A 6.5-magnitude earthquake shook the ocean floor about 100 miles off the northern California coast Thursday morning, causing weak to light shaking in coastal communities in parts of that state and Oregon, the US Geological Survey said. The quake, centered about 102 miles west of Ferndale, California, happened around 6:50 a.m. PT. Light shaking was reported from east central Oregon to areas a few dozen miles south of San Francisco, the USGS said.

Deadly magnitude 6.5 earthquake hits Aceh in Indonesia   BBC - December 7, 2016

An earthquake off Indonesia's northern Aceh province has killed at least 97 people, say local military officials. The magnitude 6.5 quake struck just off the north-east coast of Sumatra island, where dozens of buildings have collapsed and many people are feared trapped under rubble. In 2004, a huge undersea quake off the coast of Aceh caused a tsunami that killed more than 160,000 people in Indonesia alone. There was no tsunami after Wednesday's tremor, which the US Geological Survey said struck just offshore at 05:03 local time (22:03 GMT Tuesday) at a depth of 8km.

  Earthquake hits off coast of Central America   CNN - November 24, 2016

A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Central America on Thursday afternoon, the US Geological Survey said. The quake hit at a depth of 10.3 kilometers (6.4 miles) about 149 kilometers (93 miles) south-southwest of Puerto El Triunfo, El Salvador, USGS said.

  6.9-magnitude earthquake strikes off Japan + Aftershocks and possible Tsunami   CNN - November 22, 2016

A 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's Honshu island on Tuesday, triggering tsunami waves and bringing back traumatic memories for locals of the devastating 2011 Fukushima disaster. Residents in Fukushima Prefecture braced for the worst after a tsunami warning was issued early Tuesday morning -- along the same stretch of coast devastated by enormous waves five years ago. In 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake -- one of the worst ever to hit Japan -- killed more than 20,000 people and caused tsunamis of up to 12 meters (40 feet) which swamped the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, triggering a nuclear meltdown.

6.4 magnitude earthquake shakes western Argentina   CBC News - November 20, 2016

A magnitude 6.4 quake on Sunday hit western Argentina, northeast of Santiago, the capital of neighboring Chile, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake's epicenter was 16 miles (25.75 km) southwest of the Argentine town of San Juan, and about 180 miles (290 km) northeast of Santiago in Chile. The tremor was initially reported as a magnitude 6.7 but was later downgraded. Although a magnitude 6.4 is considered a strong earthquake capable of causing severe damage, it was fairly deep - 71.9 miles (115.71 km) below the Earth's surface, which would have lessened its effects.

  New Zealand Quake Ruptured 6 Faults   Live Science - November 21, 2016

The magnitude-7.8 quake that rattled New Zealand on November 14, killed at least two people and stranded thousands of others, completely transforming the underlying faults in the region. Six major faults ruptured as a result of the quake, a new map reveals. The Kaikoura earthquake struck the South Island of New Zealand early in the morning on Nov. 14 local time, triggering landslides, tsunamis and hundreds of aftershocks. And thousands of people were stranded when earthquake detritus dammed a river. During the quake, bystanders captured images of mysterious earthquake lights painting the sky in eerie blue and green.
