Violent shaking can cause certain soils to flow. The shaking results from a nearby earthquake.

Earthquakes are natural phenomena that cause a sudden and violent shaking of the ground. An earthquake at sea often causes a tsunami, which is a big tidal wave.

The movment does cause the rattle of buildings shaking as well.

The energy released by fault movement forms seismic waves. These waves then cause an earthquake and is felt as a sudden and violent shaking of the Earth's surface.

violent storm shaking the living tree

An earthquakes danger is caused by the ground shaking. The ground shaking can cause buildings to collapse, gas lines to break, and Tsunami's.

There are several different diseases which can cause the body to start shaking. If the shaking is particularly violent, this could be epilepsy. A less violent shaking could be Parkinson's disease. But there are several other possibilities. Factors such as cold, nervousness, or fatigue can also result in shaking of various kinds.

Yes. A shaking of the earth is call an earthquake. In some cases earthquakes can be absolutely devastating.

the four ways an earthquake can cause damage is by shaking,liquefaction,aftershocks,or tsunamis.

No. The type of shaking in an earthquake is not the same as the type needed to cause shaken baby syndrome.

The tsunami in Japan occurred because when the tectonic plates under ground move they cause an earthquake. Sometimes an earthquake can cause a tsunami from shaking underwater.

It will cause the crust to weaken up. This will cause loss of life and property on it.

Earthquakes cause shaking that causes soil, rocks to slide down a mountain side. The longer the earthquake the more likely there will be large landslides. Volcanoes can also cause landslides when they erupt.

Causes of earthquake damage includes Shaking, Liquefaction, Aftershocks, and Tsunamis

i think so because if a earthquake is close to a volcano the the shaking from a earthquake will put a crack in the volcano lava chamber and then the volcano erupt.

A cyclone is an atmospheric event resulting from interactions of air currents. A cyclone often brings rain, wind, and thunderstorms, sometimes these storms can be violent.A hurricane is a very strong type of cyclone.An earthquake is a geologic event, originating underground. In simplest terms an earthquake is the ground shaking. Sometimes this shaking is strong enough to cause severe damage. This usually results from tectonic plates, the segments into which the surface of earth is divided, sliding past one another.

If they are warped they can cause shaking when braking.

The P-waves and S-waves spread out away from the epicenter and cause movement (Shaking).

It changes it because when the plates push together it might a sort of shaking and when the plates collide they either go up or down pushing on earths crust making a earthquake.

Earthquakes are like a rubber band. They both have limits. If you strech a rubber band the farthest it can, it will eventually meet it's elastic limit or the point where it can strech its farthest. If you go any farther than its elastic limit the rubber band will break. This is an example of how earthquakes are formed.I'm not sure if a volcano can cause earthquake or an earthquake can cause an volcanic eruption or both. But earthquakes can cause volcanoes to erupt. There are many kinds of earthquakes some are big and destructive but most of them are small that we can't even feel. Small earthquakes are important now and then because if they don't happen often the stress and force build up and create a big earthquake. One cause of earthquake causes in volcanic regions can probably be the shaking of an earthquake can cause an eruption. Or the shaking ofa volcano can cause an earthquake.

Gravity is a force everything on Earth is influenced by. The usual causes of landslides are earthquake, heavy rainfall, and the felling of trees on steep slopes.

An earthquake = a shaking or other movement of part of the earth's surface. It is caused by movement deep within the earth. Earthquakes can cause the ground to split.

Earthquakes don't come in type, but there are a number of ways they are triggered and the different movements of the ground shaking they cause.
