A lot of the buildings would be destroyed and not many people would probably not survive.

An 8.3 earthquake will produce tsunami of how far?

Bear in mind that it is not just the Richter scale measurement which determines the severity of a tsunami which results from an earthquake; the location of the earthquake is also relevant. And inland earthquake does not produce the same tsunami as an underwater earthquake. That said, 8.3 is an extremely powerful earthquake which could produce a tsunami that would travel for thousands of miles and cause immense dammage over a very wide area.


Why are the biggest earthquakes not the biggest killers?

No it isn't. There are several factors which contribute to earthquake fatalities: the size of the earthquake, the amount of population in the affected area, and the quality of construction of the buildings in that area. So, a huge earthquake taking place in an unpopulated region of Alaska, for example, would cause few if any fatalities, whereas a much small earthquake in Haiti caused lots of fatalities, due both to density of population and to poor construction standards.

What factors make an earthquake deadly?

If I were in the middle of a grass field during an earthquake, then probably nothing bad would happen to me, I wouldn't get injured. However, if I were in the middle of a shopping mall, with 5 tons of concrete above my head... different story... To put it short: stability of the buildings is crucial. So is the density of the population. If buildings collapse easily, and if there are many people in the given region, then the results of an earthquake can be pretty bad...

Would an earthquake be considered a natural hazard where there are no people?

Earthquakes usually cannot knock over trees, even if they would level buildings. In a natural area, the worst an earthquake would cause is a landslide. The exception would be an underwater earthquake that caused a tsunami, because tsunamis can cause a lot of damage, even in the wild.


What damage do earthquakes do to buildings and roads?

It matters what earthquake it is it can be a volcanic earthquake that would make the road messed up and it all matters about the magnitude that is what makes trouble. so it matters about two things what kind of earthquake and the magnitude. Reporter Delton
