Repair Of Another Once-Great Yahoo! Widget

Hello to the forum and thank you in advance for your welcome. It is because of my pursuit to renew, or in some cases, re-activate the long discontinued Yahoo! widgets that I've ended up here at Rainmeter. Several other forum members have been at work at this site to reconstitute the beloved Yahoo! weather widget, with some experiencing good success at it. Therefore, I am here to implore anyone who may be able to help, to help reconstitute another Yahoo! widget and that one is the Yahoo! Earthquake widget. I've contacted the usgs.gov to ask if they have changed their RSS format or made any significant changes and they claim they haven't made any. They are still sending out real-time earthquake information. Someone that I've been in touch with over at Donation Coder (will code for food) actually fixed the Yahoo! weather widget and was kind enough to provide a simple download link which provided the fix. I asked her If she would be willing to take a look at the earthquake widget and she politely declined so I'm here to seek help in restoring/preserving the earthquake widget. It's really (was) a great little widget so please, can anyone help?

Do you have any information on the Yahoo version, a screenshot, old code, or a detailed description?

EarthquakeMap by Brian is about the only working earthquake Rainmeter skin I am aware of, but I have no idea if it is anything like the old Yahoo widget.

Dear eclectic-tech,
Thank you for replying to my post; I have posted the urls where the code(s), revisions, and updates to the usgs.gov widget feeds may be found. Also, the urls contain some screen-shots of the original images of the widget; I have included the url of the site where the original Yahoo! Konfabulator widget engine may be safely downloaded -- https://rickyromero.com/widgets/

Thank you deeply for your help. Julian A Smith
