Rates of earthquakes across the united states m ≥ 30 grew rapidly between 2008 and 2015 but have steadily declined over the past 3 years, especially in areas of oklahoma and southern kansas where fluid injection has decreased the seismicity pattern in 2017 was complex with earthquakes more spatially dispersed than in the previous years. Earthquake risk in the eastern united states: the largest earthquake in the east was a 75 temblor that struck charleston, south carolina, in 1886, killing over 60 people while the risk of an earthquake in the northeast is not nearly as high as in the west, the region is seismically active.

Cooperative research by scientists of the united states and the people's republic of china (prc) has resulted in important new finding concerning the fundamental characteristics of earthquakes and new insight into mitigating earthquake hazards. Earthquake hazards and risk in the united states1 given the potentially huge costs associated with a large, damaging earthquake in the united states, an ongoing issue for congress is whether the federally supported earthquake programs are appropriate for the earthquake risk.
