You know you are a nerd when you check the earthquakes each morning over the last 24 hours. Coffee and clicking for, “only a few minutes”.
My first site… http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
This one is like an old friend. Simple to use and pretty quick…Below is an image from today (6/16/2016 at 8:56 AM or 12:56 UTC))
Your eyes take you right to the fault lines and the quakes along those lines…Except for our friends in Okahoma…(Oh, here he goes again…)
Oklahoma and Texas just today
I go to this one if there was a large quake (over 6.0) on our half of the earth, or any quake close to home. Once this site opens I click on the BGSO Bowling Green station…It is the closest station online. One day our LCHO station will be online and I can see what was skaken in my yard.
Here is a nice one from BGSO. Remember this station is in Bowling Green, Ohio. It shows two quakes in Ecuador on 5-18-2016
Still figuring this one out. It has fascinating displays that show you what the area stations pick up. The more you play with this one, the more you learn. You also learn just how small this planet is.
Need more coffee.
