Earthquakes because they have no warning, and effect much larger ares of land.

Volcanoes aren't the answer because you can get out of the waymuch faster and most of the time you will have a warning (sign) before it actually happens.

earthquakes occur above faults, or where the tectonic plates meet. Volcanoes are usually in tropical areas.

not necessarily, they strike on the fault lines of tectonic plates, when the plates bump into each other, they create volcanoes or earthquakes

They happen at certain areas because of the plates under the Earth.

The majority of Earth's volcanoes and earthquakes are associated with the boundaries where tectonic plates meet.

they live there because the soil which is left over is very good for growing crops, and most volcanoes happen in rural places so agriculture is a big thing.

Fault lines in the Tectonic Plates underneath them. Also you will always have earthquakes anywhere near or in close proximity of volcanoes.

Earthquakes occur because of the volcanic activity in undersea/under land. The tectonics moving, etc.

Earthquakes and volcanoes tend to be centered along the edges of Earth's geological plates, the vast, cohesive areas of Earth's crust that slowly move in relation to each other.

The location of earthquakes and volcanoes support the theory of plate tectonics because the areas that are seismically active occur along the edges of the Earth's plates. This is because lava can push to the surface between the plates, and plates that overlap can cause both volcanoes and earthquakes.

seismographs and seismometers are used in suspected "at risk" areas of tectonic activity (earthquakes and volcanoes)

No. Volcanoes can be found at hot spots away from plate boundaries. These volcanoes can produce earthquakes. Earthquakes can also occur at areas of ancient geologic activty such as failed rifts and can occur as a result fo glacier retreating.

The Circum-Pacific Belt, or also known as the Pacific Ring of Fire, accounts for about 80% of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that occur in a year, and is home to about 68% of Earth's volcanoes.

There are faultlines along the bottom of the Levant coastline, the Red Sea, and the Olduvai Gorge. Earthquakes happen in those areas. There are no significant volcanoes in the Middle East or Africa.

Earthquakes occur around the areas where volcanoes are so if you look at a map of a volcanoes around the world, you'll be able to see. Of course there's some variation as to the location of earthquakes to that of a volcano but to decide one point, it would have to be the ring of fire.

The Earth is made up of 7 shields or islands if you like that float around grinding and bumping into each other all the time settling and building up pressure. the worst areas for earthquakes and volcanoes is near the edges of these shields where all the movement is.

they cause some of the biggest waves and cause tons of damage to builinds and areas but a volcano is safer

because the form together pushing each other creating one together

when the have disturbances, earthquakes happen. when they errupt, anything that doesnt run is burned alive

they are prone because they both have underground passages. jordan mattiuzzo 9 years old

Not just in hot places. They can happen anywhere, but mostly along fault lines.

volcanoes provide geothermal energy which besides being great for spas and recreation is used as a of hot water in some areas of the world

Mountains and earthquakes occur in the same fold mountain areas because of the tectonic plates coming together, moving apart, and sliding one atop another. This causes areas to rise and form mountains.

This is where the fault lines of the North American and Pacific plate meet, an areas where there is lots of earthquakes, tsunamies (caused by quakes) and volcanoes.  Underneath these cracks in the Earth is magma (lava inside the earth), every once in a while, this magma will come to the surface and form volcanoes. and that is basically it
