    Any earthquake anywhere, lets have a unified place to talk about them.

    If you feel one, or hear of any around the world, post it here.

    There are quakes about every minute.

    6+? 7+? Or 1+?

    Let's just post the major quakes, probably will mean 7+ and loss of life.

    My usual cutoff for caring is over a 6 depending on where it is. Wiki gives the 1989 Loma Prieta quake a 6.9. We had a 5.5 in the early 80's that shook things pretty good here and caused quite a bit of damage. Having experienced both I would say the Bay Area would suffer significantly from even a low 6.
