The shaking of the ground is not what kills most victims of earthquakes. The main killers in earthquakes are falling buildings, fires, landslides, avalanches and tsunamis.

Each year, there are about a million earthquakes around the world. But only about 100 of these cause serious damage.

4 out of 5 of the world's earthquakes take place along the rim of the Pacific Ocean, a zone called the Pacific Ring of Fire.

The deadliest known quake in history shook China in 1556, taking about 830,000 lives.
