This is a list of earthquakes in 1910. Only magnitude 6.0 or greater earthquakes appear on the list. Lower magnitude events are included if they have caused death, injury or damage. Events which occurred in remote areas will be excluded from the list as they wouldn't have generated significant media interest. All dates are listed according to UTC time. The southwest Pacific Ocean area near Vanuatu and New Caledonia was particularly active this year.

  • By magnitude

  • Note: At least 7.0 magnitude
  • January–March

  • A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck north of Honduras on January 1 at a depth of 60.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck the Chinese side of the Yellow Sea on January 8 at a depth of 20.0 km. Many homes were destroyed especially in Jiangsu Province, China.
  • A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck to the north of Iceland on January 22 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck north of Tobago on January 23 at a depth of 100.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck southeast of the Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia on January 30 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Vanuatu on February 3 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Vanuatu on February 4 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck off south coast of Honshu, Japan on February 12 at a depth of 350.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck to the north of Crete, Greece on February 18 at a depth of 150.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck just off the coast of Rabaul, New Britain, Papua New Guinea on February 25. The depth was unknown.
  • A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Vanuatu on March 30 at a depth of 80.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Queen Maud Land, Antarctica on March 31 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • April–June

  • A magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck northeast of Taiwan on April 12 at a depth of 235.0 km. Sixty people were killed and 13 homes were destroyed.
  • A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Fiji on April 20 at a depth of 330.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Vanuatu on May 1 at a depth of 80.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck northeast of San Jose, Costa Rica on May 4 at an unknown depth. At least 700 people were killed and there was extensive damage particularly at Cartago.
  • A magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck Bristol Bay, Alaska on May 13 at a depth of 100.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the Kuril Islands, Russia on May 22 at a depth of 35.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the northern East Pacific Rise on May 31 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • On June 1 two earthquakes struck Vanuatu. The first was a magnitude 7.3 at a depth of 80.0 km. This was followed less than an hour later by a magnitude 7.1 quake. This event also had a depth of 80.0 km. As the events were of similar magnitude, and so close in time to each other they could be considered a doublet earthquake.
  • A magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck the Izu Islands, Japan on June 9 at a depth of 400.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the Alboran Sea south of Spain on June 16 at a depth of 35.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Tanna (island), Vanuatu on June 16 at a depth of 100.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck south of Taiwan on June 17 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck Bouira Province, Algeria on June 24 at a depth of 33.0 km. Twelve people died and some damage was reported.
  • A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand on June 29 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand on June 29 at a depth of 0.0 km. This event was further to the northwest than the stronger earlier event. Whilst this was probably too far away to be considered an aftershock it was likely triggered by the earlier quake.
  • July–September

  • A magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck Xinjiang Province, China on July 12 at a depth of 120.0 km.
  • A magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea on July 29 at a depth of 80.0 km.

  • A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck to the west of the Haida Gwaii Islands, Canada on November 6 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck Vanuatu on November 9 at a depth of 20.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Vanuatu on November 10 at a depth of 90.0 km. Some damage was reported as well as a tsunami.
  • A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck just off the northeast coast of Taiwan on November 14 at a depth of 0.0 km.
  • A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck to the east of the South Sandwich Islands on November 15 at a depth of 60.0 km.
