The 7 day list shows only 2.5 or greater. If you click on "Real Time" for the USA you will see a map with quakes both above and below 2.5. Quake boxes on the map are linked to pages with data for each quake.

Salewsky doesn't know what caused his backyard to split in two and neither do police.
There have been no recent reports of any earthquakes in the area.
People specializing in geological surveying are being called in to try and explain the phenomenon.

This feature was reported to local officials, who contacted Michigan Tech, and the news media.
On Sunday, 09 October, Dr Wayne Pennington, Chair of the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences of Michigan Technological University, visited the site (figure 1 and figure 2). The following is a report of observations and tentative conclusions...
