This was posted on another local blog, but I thought it is worth spreading. Worcester has experienced a very small earthquake about two years ago or so. Looking at this list is a bit sobering.
The site list the latest earthquakes in the world during the past 7 days
including earthquakes with magnitude greater than 2.5 located by the USGS and contributing networks in the last week (168 hours). Magnitudes 4.5 and above are in bold font. Magnitudes 6 and above are displayed in red. (Some early events may be obscured by later ones on the maps.)
The most recent earthquakes are at the top of the list. Times are in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Click on the word “map” to see a ten-degree tall map displaying the earthquake. Click on an event’s “DATE” to get a detailed report.
