what are the effects of earthquake?

Some major effects of the earthquakes are as follows:

  1. Shaking of land
  2. Tsunami
  3. Ground splitting
  4. Landslides
  5. Floods
  6. Fire
  7. Loss of life or injuries may be caused if proper measures not taken
  8. Loss of property 

NOTE: These effects might not caused if the magnitude of the quake is below 5 (at least) in Richter scale. Earthquakes cause destruction usually when the magnitude is usually above 6 in Richter scale. However, any type of earthquake should not be taken lightly, we must always be ready to follow the safety measures and also try to make others aware of the measures. The main thing that should be remembered is that we must never panic during an earthquake. As panic can stop the thinking ability of the person and may be the person can take steps that may result to a painful result. So, hope all of them reading this post may learn something from the above lines and also try to follow it. 

I am not posting this answer for any thumbs up from friends and experts truly. Because I value life is more important for all of us.

Hope it helps !!!!!! All the best !!!!!!!!!
