I have compiled the best Bay Area Earthquake Map sources for you all in one here as well as a few live feeds so bookmark this page. This USGS Bay Area earthquake map site comes in handy when you can’t tell if there was an earthquake or you’re just tripping.
Bay Area Earthquake Maps
- New Bay Area Earthquake Map – Do not like. They took away the old maps.
- Earthquake info listing – Raw text list.
- Earthquake Bot – A bot that tweets all quakes in the Bay.
- Earthquake Kit – Because you should be prepared.
- Live Storm Tracker – and lightening maps, a must see.
Best Earthquake App For your phone
Earthquake by Red Cross – I’ve found after trying many free earthquake apps that the best one is actually from Red Cross! It allows you to set up real time data monitoring and select a radius, earthquake magnitude as well as multiple locations.
Highly Recommended YouTube Channels To Follow
Dutchsinse – Earthquake activity summaries, volcanic activity tracking, geological information and earthquake forecast. A really neat channel to follow. You will learn a lot.
Suspicious Observers – An amazing channel with daily sun / solar weather reports and various space news, earthquake news, new observations and more. I make sure to watch every single episode and I even pay the $20 a year to subscribe to his website where he offers more information.
NASA Goddard – Warning, only follow this if you like really cool stuff from NASA.
Juice Media Rap News – Warning! Only follow this channel if you can think outside of the mainstream media and understand what’s going on. Seriously if you’re a drone zombie you won’t get it / appreciate it. Otherwise this is my very favorite channel on Youtube.
I personally do not like the new USGS Bay Area map.
As a Californian Bay Area native I have grown up with small earthquakes. They frequent the region so we’re kind of used to them in the Bay.
But when you really think about it, in my whole 34 years I have only been in one real earthquake. The 1989 earthquake that rocked the San Francisco Bay Area.
I just added the live earthquake poll up there to see how many people come here thinking they felt an earthquake and if there really was just an earthquake or if they were just imagining things.
It’s going to be interesting when there is a real live earthquake here in the Bay Area because that poll should spike on the yes side.
