EFFECTS OF EARTHQUAKE AROUND THE GLOBE!
An earthquake is the sudden release of energy in the Earth’s lithosphere that results in seismic waves, which cause the Earth’s surface to shake. Other names for it are quake, tremor, and temblor. Quakes can range in size from those that are so little that no one can feel them to those that are strong enough to obliterate critical infrastructure, toss people and objects into the air, and completely destroy cities.
Seismic activity refers to a region’s frequency, kind, and magnitude of earthquakes over a given time period. Seismological activity in a particular area of the Earth is measured as the average rate of seismic energy release per unit volume. Different countries go through the tremors of earthquakes and there are different effects of earthquakes on different countries.
