Caused by movements of the Earth’s crust the energy released causes seismic waves. Some are weak but strong earthquakes can destroy cities. Earthquakes can trigger tsunamis, avalanches, landslides and fires that further take a toll on life and property. The effects of an earthquake and its aftermath are worse in heavily populated areas where more lives may be lost and great damage done to property and the city’s infrastructure. Depending on the strength of the earthquake and its geographic location earthquakes can be extremely costly. Some areas of the world have to completely rebuild following an earthquake.
