USGS and EMSC do not agree.  Reporting data from both.
Earthquake totals in last 24 hours according to:
 
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
24 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 95.1   Avg mag = 3.96 (*)

http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/?filter=yes
62 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 222.3   Avg mag = 3.58
 
(*) magnitude >2.4 in USA, and >4.4 elsewhere.  (>2.4 worldwide not available)
-----------------------------------------------------
 
Three strongest quakes from either site:
*  Mag. 5.3  in central mid-west Indian Ocean, ESE of South Africa (USGS.  EMSC: 5.0).
*  Mag. 5.1  in north mid-west Greece (USGS.  EMSC: 5.0).

--------------------------
 
From USGS:
 
*  Little shakers (mag. 1.0 ~ 2.4) in Alaska (15 Qs), Hawaii (5 Qs), Washington (state), western Montana (5 Qs), California and nearby in Mexico, Nevada, and Tennessee (USA);  and in Puerto Rico region.
 
*  44 little shakers in California, Nevada, and nearby in Mexico; plus many smaller ones.  (All-magnitude clusters in California: SE of Los Angeles and nearby, and mid-north west)
 
*  No 'quakes of any magnitudes in Yellowstone Park, Wyoming and Montana.
 
*  Stronger 'quakes (mag. > 2.4) in California (3 Qs), and Texas (USA);  and in Puerto Rico region (6 Qs).
 
Notes:  Quarry blasts and explosions are excluded from above lists and totals.
USGS lists some sites near borders as near locations across the border.
 -------------------------------

36 earthquakes of magnitude >1.9 in last 24 hours in Euro-Med region, according to http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/Map/zoom.php?key=1&typ=world#2 (9 approx. in Turkey).

The quake in Algeria has also produced vent holes from which steam appears to be exiting.

Terral Croft posted a reminder today that earth is in a relative lull period until the 3rd week in February, because we are on the opposite side of the sun from the Black Star.  The diagram below for today also demonstrates that most of the other planets in our solar system are also on the other side of the sun with the Black Star, causing much energetic entanglement between those bodies. 

From the third week of February until around the same week of May, earthquakes should increase in frequency and magnitude, and we should expect some sevens, Terral said.  A paucity of seismic activity now does not mean that pressure has been relieved, he says, but rather that it is building up for the spring period, particularly along the West Coast of the U.S.

USGS and EMSC do not agree.  Reporting data from both.
Earthquake totals in last 24 hours according to:
 
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
30 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 123.2   Avg mag = 4.11 (*)

http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/?filter=yes
83 'quakes of magnitude >2.4   Total mags = 305.9   Avg mag = 3.69
 
(*) magnitude >2.4 in USA, and >4.4 elsewhere.  (>2.4 worldwide not available)
-----------------------------------------------------
 
Three strongest quakes from either site:
*  Mag. 7.6  between Belize (nearest) and Jamaica (both sites).
*  Mag. 5.4  off the east coast mid-south of Japan (both sites).
*  Mag. 5.2  between New Zealand and Tonga (both sites).

Largest groups of multiple quakes from either site:
*  11  in Costa Rica; north to central (EMSC.  USGS: 0).
*  9  in Turkey; west incl. nearby islands, and east (EMSC.  USGS: 0).
*  7  east of Belize (both sites).
*  6  in Greece; mid-north central and east, off west coast mid-north, mid-west central, and south of Crete (EMSC.  USGS: 0).
*  5  in Chile; north, and mid-north (EMSC.  USGS: 1).
*  5  in Mexico; inland and offshore of west coast south (EMSC.  USGS: 0).
*  4  in California USA; offshore north, central east and west, and south mid-west (both sites).
*  4  in Italy; off the west coast south (EMSC.  USGS: 0).

*  3  in or around each of:   Japan,  Montenegro,  Iran,  and Puerto Rico    (at least one source site each).
--------------------------
 
From USGS:
 
*  Little shakers (mag. 1.0 ~ 2.4) in Alaska and nearby in Canada (28 Qs), Hawaii (4 Qs), Washington (state), west-central Montana (10 Qs), NW Wyoming and nearby in Montana, California, Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Arkansas, and Tennessee (USA);  and in Puerto Rico region. 

*  40 little shakers in California and Nevada.  (All-magnitude clusters in California: SE of Los Angeles and nearby; and minor clusters in central east,  and mid-north west.)
 
*  2 'quakes of all magnitudes near to Yellowstone Park, Wyoming (max. mag = 1.0).
 
*  Stronger 'quakes (mag. > 2.4)  in California (4 Qs), and Texas (USA);  and in Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico region (3 Qs).
 
Notes:  Quarry blasts and explosions are excluded from above lists and totals.
