More Places to be Affected by Earthquakes

31 Aug 17

Earthquakes occur half a million times each year worldwide. This has been estimated by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Most of the earthquakes are too small that will rattle your teacup. But there are some earthquakes which can create havoc like the 2011 quake off the coast of Japan or last year’s Italy disaster. These earthquakes can level high-rise buildings; knock out power, water and communications. These can actually leave a lifelong legacy of trauma to those people who are caught in these earthquakes.

Geologists are focused on the California’s San Andreas Fault in USA which suggested that it has a closely one-in-five chance of getting a major earthquake in the coming three decades. Kathryn Miles is the author of Quakeland: On the Road to America’s Next Devastating Earthquakes and she said that they are not only concerned about faults but other things too. San Andreas consists of a huge fault zone that moves differently with various types of geological features. Thus, as a result, different types of earthquakes can happen in different places.
