10/25/2011 — Global Earthquake Overview — 192 magnitude 6.0 or greater earthquakes so far this year !

(above is a screenshot of the last 14 days of earthquakes globally recorded by the USGS 2.0 and greater)

Watch the video of the earthquake forecast here:

I have pulled the official numbers for magnitude 6.0 and greater earthquakes from the EMSC european agency:
Stats for the 6.0+ magnitude earthquakes come from the EMSC european agency-  so far, this year:

1874 – 5.0 to 5.9 magnitude -
173 – 6.0 to 6.9 magnitude -
17   – 7.0 to 7.9 magnitude -
ONE 8.4 magnitude (libya) – link to video report here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPxxEGAzVEs
ONE 9.0 magnitude (japan)

Total large quakes 6.0M or greater = 192 so far (as of Oct. 25 2011).

Here are the official numbers from the USGS on what is considered “normal” number of large earthquakes:

Normal is 134 / yr (6.0M+) and 16 / yr (7.0M+)…

Earthquake Facts and Statistics

Frequency of Occurrence of Earthquakes

Magnitude Average Annually
8 and higher 1 ¹
7 – 7.9 15 ¹
6 – 6.9 134 ²
5 – 5.9 1319 ²
4 – 4.9 13,000
(estimated)
3 – 3.9 130,000
(estimated)
2 – 2.9 1,300,000
(estimated)

¹ Based on observations since 1900.
These numbers have been recently updated, based on data from the Centennial catalog (from 1900 to 1999) and the PDE (since 2000).
² Based on observations since 1990.
