Top ten places where earthquakes may appear. South Washington On the boundary of the Eurasian plate. California Greece Alaska Italy Texas Japan Chile Haiti
1 and 2 1. South Washington because as shown on the map below south washington is significantly more red then the rest of the area surrounding it. 2. Also shown on this map the bindery of the Eurasian is much more red then any of the boundaries at all. Map from: http://library.thinkquest.org/J001393/earthquakes/movie_play_b.htm
3 and 4 3. California as we know a recent earthquakes in Japan have hit and studies show that after shocks will most likely happen and other studies show that some after shocks take years and hit no where near the main earthquake happened 4. Last year a big earth quake was support to hit Greece because (its hard to believe) the frogs predicted it. It is a well know fact that frogs flood a place where a major earthquake will hit and they did.
5 and 6 5. Alaska has been hit with many earthquakes even (today and really today) March 30th of course this was only rated 1.25 but it still has a record of over 217 earthquake since march 27th, 2011 6. According to a map some earthquake expectancy in some places are higher then others and some lower.
7 and 8 7. Texas being right on the US border makes it more pron to earthquakes then any other state except for California and Florida. 8. As we know a really big earthquake recently hit Japan and after shocks can still happen even months later.
9 and 10 Chile a big earthquake hit Chile in February of 2010 and after shocks are still possible Haiti the answer is pretty much the same for Haiti there can still be after shocks.
What have I learned about earthquakes? I have learned lots about earthquakes one being they can sometimes be predicted and other times they come without warning. Earthquakes I have learned can also be like leftovers of earthquakes that have happened before them.
What factors influence the prediction of earthquakes Much thought goes into the prediction of earthquakes much thought goes into the prediction of any natural disaster but the main way they predict this is by seeing if there was a major earthquake that happened before and if it could possibly by a after shock.
Where to most big earthquakes strike? Most big earthquakes occur on the boundaries of big plates. And where earthquakes have recently happened or commonly happen.
