USGS Did you Feel It?
When an earthquake occurs, geology and geography can have a big impact on who does and doesn’t feel it. Doing your part, even in a small tremor, can mean filling out a USGS “Did You Feel It?” report. These reports can help scientists at the USGS learn more about earthquakes, help make the ShakeMap and PAGER system more accurate, and help inform Emergency Managers about which areas may be impacted. With this critical information, governments, businesses, organizations, and people can take action to prevent and lessen damage from and earthquake.
Even if you didn’t feel it, that report can help prevent inaccurate reporting, so filling out a report when near a notable quake can help further our understanding of the ground beneath us.
