Earthquake Information

When the ground starts shaking, as it did in Taiwan here a few minutes ago, the USGS (US Geological Survey) provides info on any earthquakes that happen worldwide. If you read their info page, it says details are usually available 20 minutes after an incident. My experience is that it is usually about 45 minutes after the event before the info can found online for quakes in Taipei / Japan (based upon the 8 or so earthquakes I’ve experienced so far this year).
