Science Wednesday – May 8, 2019
It’s Science Wednesday! The Earth is an active place and every day, earthquakes happen somewhere on the planet. The National Earthquake Information Center (Golden, Colorado) locates about 12,000 – 14,000 earthquakes worldwide each year! On average, magnitude 2 and smaller earthquakes happen several hundred times a day worldwide. The bigger ones (magnitude 7) happen once a month somewhere in the world.
