On average there are over 14,000 earthquakes with magnitude higher or equal to ~4 each year. In this visualization,
earthquakes with magnitudes over 3.5 from the last 12 months are shown with an exaggerated depth by a factor of 6.
For Utah, earthquakes with magnitudes over 2.0 from the last 12 months are shown.
The orange lines (
) represent the boundaries of the tectonic plates. Earthquake data from
