Significant 'Quakes (Listing Only!)

Notice: Pages in this section (until 1999) are currently offline as they contain unpublished data and will be made available once they appear in print elsewhere. Any inconvenience is sincerely regretted.

This page lists select earthquakes in south Asia i.e India, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan & the Maldives. These events have been chosen on the basis of their magnitude or their reported intensity; the latter especially the case with historical earthquakes. The coloured dots indicate the size of the earthquake: Black=M8+, Red=M7.0-7.9 and Blue=below 6.9. A clickable map of this listing is also available. Bear in mind that dates given on this page are in UTC. Check the relevant page for the corresponding date in local time. Events from the year 2000 and onward are separately listed.
