It depends on where the earthquake takes place. If it takes place on Vancouver Island,then the effect would happen on Vancouver Island. If happens in Vancouver,then the effect would happen in Vancouver.

Earthquakes that occur under water (oceans, seas) are the only type of earthquake that produces a Tsunami. For example, if an earthquake occurred at New Madrid (almost in the center of northern-midwest USA), there would be no Tsunami.

Because the mud could cover the whole place that the earthquake took place inAnd...there would be 2 much...

No. Days would be shorter; time itself would hardly be affected.

unfortunately yes an 11.0 or higher earthquake could happen tho the earthquake itself would not be the problem the cause of the Earthquake would be the most devastating being caused by either a super Volcano or a large Asteroid hitting the earth. the likely hood of survival anywhere on Earth would be very very slim to none for any type of animal including humans or plant life, although I am sure something would survive Humans would probably would not be one of them.

If the plane is on air there is not at all any effect. If it is on the ground it depends on the earthquake and where the plane is situated. In a clear area thr plane would not have much effect.

A Tsunami is an earthquake in the sea. When a tsunami happens it creates a huge wave. The first thing that happened in Japan was the earthquake. The earthquake itself would have been a disaster but then there was a tsunami. Earthquakes are made by the earth's plates were shifting. This shifting may have cause the tsunami as well.

It would go up in flames and everyone would die. But since it's Houston, nobody would really care.

Yes, it kills itself. Or else it would say "all other cards", like Judgment Dragon does.

No, there is no such thing as "would of" ... the term is would have, as in "I would have felt terror at the earthquake if I'd been there."

it depends on what way you use it. if you were to use it as a noun, you would have to put it with another word such as earth in which case it would become earthquake. if you were to use it by itself, however, it would normally be used as a verb.

There is no need to capitalize earthquake.

A tsunami is an ocean wave that is caused by an earthquake. It would occur after an earthquake.

if the earthquake is unexpected i would run to the safest place and drop cover and hold.

The most famous Earthquake is the Haiti Earthquake. That would partly depend on where you lived. To people in Lisbon, the most famous earthquake would be that which destroyed that Portuguese city in the early 1700s.

No. An earthquake may alter the rate at which the earth rotates by a tiny amount. It would be completely unnoticeable to anything except the most sensitive instruments. It does NOT alter time itself.

This can create a mountain or more commonly a volcano that will form a mountain. It also causes earthquakes. it would make a Earthquake

The biggest clubs would be Barcelona, Real Madrid, Villareal and Atletico Madrid.

the best would be barcelona real madrid valencia villareal and atletico madrid

An earthquake that was rated 3 on the Richter scale would beignored

I would say a big earthquake is 4.0 or bigger

Madrid would be in western Europe, in Spain, which is more specifically in the south-west of Europe.
