Interesting Facts..

You would feel the ground shake in a magnitude 3 quake.

The largest recorded earthquake was a 9.5 quake in Chile in 1960.

Steel, reinforced concrete and wood are good building materials for an earthquake resistant house because they flex somewhat without breaking. Family homes built completely out of brick are not as safe because they can break apart easily.

A magnitude 7 or higher can destroy a city.
