  • DEFINITION:
    • An earthquake is a trembling or shaking movement of the Earth's surface. Earthquakes typically result from the movement of faults, quasi-planar zones of deformation within its uppermost layers.
  • THE MOST TRAGIC EARTHQUAKES IN HISTORY. The Richter magnitude scale , also known as the local magnitude scale, assigns a single number to quantify the amount of seismic energy released by an earthquake. It is a base-10 logarithmic scale.

  •   SURVIVE IN AN EARTHQUAKE
  • You must not be under of something because they always fall down. You must be in a small place.
  • You should be in fetal position.
  • A house made of wood is safer because it does empty spaces .
  • If you are sleeping or watching TV, lie down to the floor or go next to the sofa, chair or big furniture .
  • Don’t be down the doorframe because it will break and you will die crushed
  • Don’t go downstairs because you don’t know when it can move and break .
  • Go to a place where you are in the external wall because you will be safer than when you are in the centre of the room. If you are in a car, go out and stay next to the car
