All earthquakes from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017
from 1.0 and above (Richter Scale).*
 

                                     Earthquake data is from USGS Earthquakes of the Week. 

*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 earthquakes in the Los Angeles
region were recorded because of the high probability of a large earth quake.
