No. Hurricanes are atmospheric phenomena, while earthquakes can only be triggered by processes relatively deep within the earth.

No, earthquakes are triggered when a tectonic plate shifts. An earthquake takes place in the ground. Hurricanes, on the other hand, take place in the sky. It will take an enormous hurricane to move an area by one centimeter. But, they can never cause earthquakes.

Earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and tornadoes are all severe. It just depends on how strong they are and where they occur.
