It seems to me like there were a lot of earthquakes last week. Then I discovered Earthquakes In The Last Week, which marries USGS data and the Google Maps API. It looks like there were … but because this site has no archived data, I can’t compare it with, say the same week in 2006 (or even last week). So I don’t know if it’s more or fewer than normal … but there were a lot. At least to this uneducated eye. Check it out!
