Significant Earthquakes Archive. Search Earthquake Catalog. The USGS Earthquake Hazards Program is part of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), established by Congress inand the USGS Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) was established by Congress as a NEHRP facility.

The USGS and its partners monitor and report earthquakes. Some earthquake hazards include objects that are shattered like windows, or objects that fall, like rocks or buildings.

Other hazards include the actually faults in the earth that sometimes open. 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. The preceding Perspectives in this series (1–4) provide snapshots of the earthquake and tsunami risks, hazard monitoring and risk mitigation activities, and current research questions concerning some of the world's seismic hot spots—South Central Asia, the Caribbean, Turkey, Tokyo, and image that emerges is one of considerable Cited by: 9.

With the creation of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program in the late s, coordinated efforts were begun to educate the U.S. public. An earthquake is a sudden, rapid shaking of the ground caused by the shifting of rocks deep underneath the earth’s surface.

Earthquakes can happen without warning and can result in injuries and damage to property and roads. Earthquakes can cause fires, tsunamis, landslides or avalanches. While they can happen anywhere, areas at higher risk for earthquakes include.

Earthquake hazards in the Charleston can be divided in two main types: ground motion (seismic wave) hazards and ground deformation hazards.

Because the major earthquake source region in the Charleston area is inland, locally derived tsunamis are not a major hazard. The most energetic swarm recorded to-date occurred in June-July ofwhich included a magnitude that was broadly felt in the Government Camp area.

The current swarm is much, much smaller than the swarm, both in terms of earthquake size and in number.of the greatest quakes in U.S. history produced violent, second shocks felt from southern Oregon to Los Angeles.

Estimated to be between and on the Richter scale, the San Francisco earthquake caused more than 3, fatalities, destroyed an estima buildings and left more thanpeople homeless. This tells a sad storyFile Size: 1MB.This handout also includes an alphabetical listing of specific U.S.
