To provide some context, we've compiled a list of links about the Tuesday afternoon magnitude-5.9 East Coast earthquake, the Monday night magnitude-5.3 Colorado earthquake and mid-Missouri's earthquake risk.
On a live blog, NPR is collecting resources and linking to news updates about the East Coast earthquake from The Washington Post, the United States Geological Survey and other media outlets.
Check out The New York Times' topics page about earthquakes for historical context and general information about earthquakes around the world.
The Washington Post has a photo gallery and a video taken as the earthquake hit Washington, D.C.
The Denver Post reports on the strongest earthquake to hit Colorado since 1967.
Last spring, after the Japan quake, the Missourian looked into our region's earthquake risk.
In December 2009, Boone County reviewed its disaster preparedness. A Missourian story from that time includes a 2002 report from the USGS that our region has a 25 to 40 percent chance of experiencing an earthquake of at least magnitude 6 in the next 50 years.
On June 7, we felt a minor tremor in Columbia. That earthquake was thought to have been magnitude 4.2 but was later downgraded to magnitude 3.9.
