IRIS recent earthquake map:

You can click on the map to see a more specific area. 


USGS map of recent Earthquakes:

Notice that above the map, you can adjust where the location (world, US, California...) by clicking on the locations.  On the left side of the screen, you can also change the data feed - that means you can click on the drop down menu and show earthquakes that are from the last 30 days instead of just the last 7 days.  If you scroll lower on the page, you can also change the magnitude of the earthquakes shown on the map.  Look at the California map, what does the line indicate that cuts through part of Califoria?  Describe where most of the earthquakes are located.
