The spot underground where the rock breaks is called the focus of the earthquake. The place right above the focus (on top of the ground) is called the epicenter of the earthquake.Energy released during an earthquake travels in the form of waves around the Earth. Two types of seismic wave exist, P- and S-waves. They are different in the way that they travel through the Earth. P-waves (P stands for primary) arrive at the detector first. They are longitudinal waves which mean the vibrations are along the same direction as the direction of travel.S-waves (S stands for secondary) arrive at the detector of a seismometer second. They are transverse waves which mean the vibrations are at right angles to the direction of travel.
WHY DO EARTHQUAKE CAUSE SO MUCH DAMAGE???
Where do earthquakes comfrom?
If one place feels the earthquake does the whole world feel it to?
what are seismic waves?
Do it come from inside the earth?
can we stop earthquuake?

Plates at our planet’s surface move because of the intense heat in the Earth’s core that causes molten rock in the mantle layer to move. It moves in a pattern called a convection cell that forms when warm material rises, cools, and eventually sink down. As the cooled material sinks down, it is warmed and rises again. Two plates sliding past each other forms a transform plate boundary. When two plates come together, it is known as a convergent boundary. A divergent boundary occurs when two tectonic plates move away from each other.

She went to her sister in Hawaii to relieve her traumatic experience.
What makes it so unique?
Hawaii is a unique island to take your mind off things. You can stay here as long as you want.
The Hawaiian Islands were formed by such a hot spot occurring in the middle of the Pacific Plate. Unlike others that are created by plate boundaries. Deep ocean trenches, volcanoes, island arcs, submarine mountain ranges, and fault lines are examples of features that can form along plate tectonic boundaries.
