USA-All Earthquakes-2017*
*California is the exception of the coverage; only earthquakes from 3.0 and larger or
 earthquakes deeper than 17.5 kilometers were recorded.  So many earthquakes occur along the western side of
 California that it would have been just a solid blur of small circles.   However, all earthquake in the Los Angeles
 region were recorded because of the high probability of a large earth quake.

 


Sequence of earthquake distribution patterns in 4 month intervals

In general there was little change in the general pattern with the exception of a
sudden cluster of earthquakes in southeastern Idaho during the last 4 months of 2017.
