  4. 4. The Earthquakes happen where the plates converge together.<br />Where do the earthquake happen?<br />
  5. 5. 47% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary. <br />What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of a convergent plate boundary?<br />
  6. 6. 71% of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary. <br />What percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of a convergent plate boundary? <br />
  7. 7. Japan<br />San Francisco<br />Chile<br />Mexico<br />Italy<br />East China<br />South Alaska<br />Caribbean Islands<br />Haiti<br />Mongolia<br />Top ten list where earthquakes will occur sometime in the future.<br />
