Earthquakes! – May 8, 2019

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.
