United States Earthquakes by Location.

June 10, 2014 40 Years of U.S. Earthquakes by Geographic Location: I downloaded U.S. earthquakes, greater than or equal to 7.0 magnitude, from 1973 to 2013. Most of the U.S. earthquakes occur in either Alaska or California, as seen in the above chart. Guam is a U.S. Protectorate.
Most of the Alaskan quakes occur along the Aleutian Island chain that arcs from the northeast to the northwest Pacific Ocean; marking the northern portion of the Pacific Ocean “Ring of Fire.” The majority of California tremors happen along the San Andreas Fault zone, a jagged geographic scar stretching 800 miles along the western portion of the state. Guam, Idaho and Hawaii also saw some powerful earthquakes.
Based upon this chart, the odds are that the next powerful earthquake to strike the United States will be in either Alaska or California; as 76% of the earthquakes plotted occurred in this region.
