USGS: Fewer Large Earthquakes in 2014

Copernicus satellite's image of the Napa Valley quake captured on 2 February 2014.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) of the Department of the Interior provided significant information on the characteristics and trend of earthquakes in 2014.

USGS estimated that the number of large earthquakes decreased from 19 in 2013 to 12 in 2014 but that moderate seismic activity was registered in areas relatively new to seismicity. Worldwide, 11 earthquakes reached magnitude 7.0-7.9 and one registered magnitude 8.2, in Chile, on April 1.
