Earthquake OneBox in Google Search

If you're in the US and you search for "earthquake" using Google, you'll notice an OneBox that shows a list of recent earthquakes. The data is provided by the US Geological Survey. has a similar direct answer that links to a very nice mashup. There's also a Google Maps mashup that highlights the most recent earthquakes.

{ Thanks, Adam. }


  1. Or you can simple have a gadget over the latest earthquakes with feeds from US Geological Survey.

  2. and if you're not in the US, append &gl=us to the search string and you'll see it as well

  3. @Michael:
    I added "gl=us" to the search URL so that everyone can see the OneBox.
