Volcanoes & Earthquakes

Contains Ads

Volcanoes & Earthquakes shows the latest earthquakes worldwide or only quakes near you, as well as earthquake "I-felt-it" reports for earthquakes, in near real-time. It also shows active volcanoes on a map and as a list, along with volcano news from all the world.
You can filter and display the data in various ways, for example by magnitude or age of earthquakes, distance from your location, volcano status and much more.
