SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The U.S. Geological Survey is required to collect, evaluate, publish and distribute information concerning earthquakes. Respondents have an opportunity to voluntarily supply information concerning the effects of shaking from an earthquake—on themselves, buildings, other man-made structures, and ground effects such as faulting or landslides. Respondents’ observations are interpreted in terms of numbers that measure the strength of shaking, and the resulting numbers are displayed on maps that are viewable from USGS earthquake Web sites. Observations are submitted via the Felt Report questionnaire accessed from the USGS Did You Feel It? Earthquake Questionnaire Web pages, and may be submitted via computer or mobile phone. Respondents are asked to provide information on the location to which the report pertains. The locations may, at the respondent’s option, be given imprecisely (city-name or postal Zip Code) or precisely (street address, geographic coordinates, or current location determined by the user’s mobile phone). Low resolution maps of shaking based on both precise and imprecise observations are published for all earthquakes for which observations are submitted. For earthquakes felt by many respondents, the observations that are associated with more precise locations are used in the preparation of higher resolution maps of earthquake shaking. We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and information to be made available to the public or for limited inspection.’’ Responses are voluntary. No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked. We will release data collected on these forms only in formats that do not include proprietary information volunteered by respondents. II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Geological Survey is required to collect, evaluate, 
publish and distribute information concerning earthquakes. Respondents 
have an opportunity to voluntarily supply information concerning the 
effects of shaking from an earthquake--on themselves, buildings, other 
man-made structures, and ground effects such as faulting or landslides. 
Respondents' observations are interpreted in terms of numbers that 
measure the strength of shaking, and the resulting numbers are 
displayed on maps that are viewable from USGS earthquake Web sites. 
Observations are submitted via the Felt Report questionnaire accessed 
from the USGS Did You Feel It? Earthquake Questionnaire Web pages, and 
may be submitted via computer or mobile phone. Respondents are asked to 
provide information on the location to which the report pertains. The 
locations may, at the respondent's option, be given imprecisely (city-
name or postal Zip Code) or precisely (street address, geographic 
coordinates, or current location determined by the user's mobile 
phone). Low resolution maps of shaking based on both precise and 
imprecise observations are published for all earthquakes for which 
observations are submitted. For earthquakes felt by many respondents, 
the observations that are associated with more precise locations are 
used in the preparation of higher resolution maps of earthquake 
shaking.
    We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary 
under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and implementing 
regulations (43 CFR part 2), and under regulations at 30 CFR 250.197, 
``Data and information to be made available to the public or for 
limited inspection.'' Responses are voluntary. No questions of a 
``sensitive'' nature are asked. We will release data collected on these 
forms only in formats that do not include proprietary information 
volunteered by respondents.
