Earthquake In Canada: Earthquake (Canada Earthquake) was felt in Canada. The intensity of this earthquake (Earthquake News) has been recorded as 5.2 and 6 on the Richter scale. According to media reports, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Alberta was recorded in northern Alberta. 6.0 on the Richter scale The earthquake is also said to be the most dangerous earthquake ever recorded in Alberta.
Earlier in April 2001, a magnitude 5.4 earthquake occurred near Alberta-BC. Around the same time, a magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck 29 kilometers from the town of Reno, Alta. This locality is near Shant River. The depth of the earthquake is estimated to be four kilometers and it occurred around 4.45 pm.
No earthquake damage
An hour later, around 6:30 p.m., another earthquake was felt near Reno. It is said to have a magnitude of 6.0 and occurred at a depth of two kilometers. However, there was no damage either time. But these tremors were felt in Edmonton, Calgary and Fort McMurray as well as in Alberta. This is the third earthquake in Alta in the last two weeks. Earlier there were 4.1 magnitude and 4.5 magnitude earthquakes.
Indonesia earthquake kills 162
A few days ago, an earthquake hit Indonesia’s main island of Java, killing 162 people and injuring more than 700. Many people are still missing. People are living in fear after seeing the devastation caused by the earthquake. The magnitude of this earthquake was 5.4 on the Richter scale.

An earthquake hit the Greek island of Crete before Indonesia early Monday morning. The magnitude of this earthquake was 6. EMSC said the epicenter was at a depth of 80 km (49.71 miles).
How do earthquakes happen?
Underground movements emit enormous amounts of energy and its "Seismic waves" are prepared Then there is the movement of the earth’s surface. Therefore, earth tremors, shaking, cracks in the earth, vibrations and sudden shaking for a few moments are called earthquakes. Earthquakes cause the earth’s surface to move back and forth or up and down. Naturally, the shocks and waves generated in the underground are propagated in all directions within the ground and on the upper surface. The source of an earthquake underground is called epicenter. The points on the earth’s surface just above the epicenter are called epicenters. Stronger waves or tremors reach this center first, so the damage is greatest there. Earthquakes can be either mild or severe in nature. Mild earthquakes are far more common than destructive earthquakes on Earth. Seismographs keep recording shocks automatically.
