Earthquakes in the past week: #1: Europe!

Normally I don’t compare that much when it comes to ‘our’ local earthquakes compared to the “rest of the world”.
However, after yesterday’s M6.1 near Crete, Greece, I could not resist to quickly check.

Maybe it’s because of the enormous numbers of aftershocks around Crete, but well, Europe is the absolute #1 today – even after the numerous #icequakes from the Bardarbunga.

Number of #earthquakes in the past week:
* Euro-Med: 481
* Africa & Indian Ocean: 502 (incl. Europe)
* Pacific: 327
* North America: 152
* South America: 139
* Asia: 80
