California and the rest of the continental United States are on high alert following highly volatile back-to-back seismic events within the last week. Tsunami warnings were issued for California and the United States West Coast after each of the earthquakes listed below.

Since California is on the eastern end of the Ring of Fire, any activity that has transpired within the last day in this seismic hot spot is nothing to be taken lightly.

The earthquakes reported below have stirred people living along the west coast of California, Oregon, and Washington. All earthquakes have been documented by USGS, one of the few credible and globally recognized seismic activity monitoring systems. UTC is an abbreviation for Coordinated Universal Time.

Magnitude 6.9 Earthquake Struck the Northern Mariana Islands: On 24 November 2023 at 9:05 AM UTC, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the Northern Mariana Islands at a depth of 16 km. (Initially documented as magnitude 7.0.)
