What is Earthquake?

An earthquake or  temblor is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth's lithosphere  that creates waves.

What is Earthquake?

Earthquakes can range in intensity, from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt, to those violent enough to propel objects and people into the air, damage critical infrastructure, and wreak destruction across entire cities

How Earthquakes caused ?

Earthquakes are caused mostly by rupture of geological faults, but also by other events such as volcanic activity, landslides, mine blasts, and nuclear test

Types of Earthquake

There are 15+ types of earthquake

Types of Earthquake

1. Aftershock Earthquake 2. Blind thrust Earthquake 3. Cryoseism Earthquake 4. Deep Focus Earthquake 5. Earthquake Swarm

Types of Earthquake

1. Foreshock Earthquake 2. Harmonic Earthquake 3. Induced Earthquake 4. Interplate Earthquake 5. Intraplate Earthquake 6. Mega thrust Earthquake

Types of Earthquake

How to measure Earthquake?

Earthquake measured by Seismometer in Magnitude Unit. There are following instruments to measure earthquake - 1. Seismometer 2. Seismic Magnitude scales 3. Seismic Intensity Scale

Prediction of Earthquake.

Quake expectation is a part of the study of seismology worried about the detail of the time, area, and size of future tremors inside expressed limits, and especially "the assurance of boundaries for the following solid quake to happen in a locale".

At magnitude 5.5 Earthquake shakes Northern California. The California Highway Patrol in Yuba-Sutter said the Earthquake caused a disruption at the agency’s Chico dispatch centre and 911 lines were down.

The earthquake occurred at 4:19 p.m. PT. The quake's center was about 2.5 miles southwest of the community of East Shore, according to the USGS

East Shore is a census-designated place with a population of over 150 and is about 162 miles northeast of Sacramento.
