Maine is first in series of state earthquake maps


  • Anonymous


A new series of maps illustrating the earthquake history of each of the conterminous 48 states is being published by the U.S. Geological Survey. The maps detail the history of recorded earthquakes, showing the location, date, time of day, latitude and longitude, severity, and area over which each recorded tremor was felt. The seismic map of Maine, first in the series, lists 82 earthquakes since 1817 that have been centered in Maine or just offshore.
