So i was browsing and i noticed that Global incident map only had USGS sources for EQ's maybe two from aus but that's it there's an awe full lot of of EQ activity NOT being reported like A 4.0 EQ in MEX that happened 2 hrs ago So now a person has to go to 3,4,5, different sources to get a total picture of what happening globally EQ wise for those of us that can use a comprehensive total picture to actually "see" what is about to happen renders us null & void W/o going all over the net to research. i know i shouldn't use just one source but for my interest its simple should be all in one spot LIKE THE NAME SAYS Which is false and now misleading.

I stand corrected 3 sources but Absolutely NOTHING in the southern Americas (watch Mexico) and NOTHING in EU and surrounding areas!!

Thats about the worst resource for quakes out there.

Might as well watch Dutch.

The USGS comments on the difficulty of obtaining global earthquake info if the magnitude is less than 4.5, but if it's greater than 5.0 anywhere in the world, they probably have something within 30 minutes.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

The maps and lists show events which have been located by the USGS and contributing agencies within the last 30 days. They should not be considered to be complete lists of all events in the US and adjacent areas and especially should not be considered to be complete lists of all events M4.5+ in the world.

In most cases, we locate and report on earthquakes worldwide of magnitude 5.0 and larger in 30 minutes or less. Additionally, we locate and report on earthquakes magnitude 4.0 and larger within the contiguous US and populated regions of Alaska within 30 minutes. Earthquakes of magnitude 2.0 or greater within the US and populated regions of Alaska are often rapidly reported if they occur within the region of a contributing local seismic network.

We may not rapidly locate earthquakes smaller than 5.0 outside the US unless they have caused significant damage or are widely felt. Earthquakes this small rarely cause significant damage. At times, some other agency may report an earthquake with a larger magnitude than what we compute from our data, especially for non-US events near magnitude 5.0. If our magnitude for the event is less than magnitude 5.0, we may not issue a rapid report for it.

Earthquakes occurring outside the US and smaller than about magnitude 4.5 can be difficult for the USGS to locate if there are not enough data. The USGS continues to receive data from observatories throughout the world for several months after the events occur. Using those data, we add new events and revise existing events in later publications.
