Earthquakes in Google Earth


The Rat Islands in Alaska are very active

In celebration of the launch of beta 4 for Google Earth I present to you one of the coolest KML (RSS) feeds for the program.

The USGS has released feed which plots earthquakes from around the world. The feed updates every hour and shows earthquakes from the past week.

It is fascinating to see all the earthquakes in California while Arizona has none. Yellowstone is active but not as active as the Ring of Fire. In land Asia, Europe, and Africa only have had a hand full. Enjoy!
