Volcanoes & Earthquakes

Contains Ads

Volcanoes & Earthquakes shows the latest world-wide earthquakes (or only quakes near you), as well as earthquake "I-felt-it" reports, in near real-time and active volcanoes on a map and as list, as well as volcano news from all the world.
You can filter the data shown in various ways, e.g. by magnitude or age of earthquakes, the distance from your location, the status of volcanoes and so on.
