Earthquake news, commentary, information, articles and reports from around the world updated in real-time. An earthquake, temblor, tremor or quake is a result of a release of energy in the crust of the Earth, like plate tectonics, or shifting plates. This sudden release of energy can create seismic waves. The seismicity, seismism or seismic activity of an area or place refers to the frequency, size and type of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. In general the word earthquake is used to describe any seismic event that generates seismic waves. Offshore epicenter earthquakes can cause a tsunamis. Earthquakes can also start landslides and volcanic activity. Earthquakes are measured with seismometers. Earthquakes larger than 5 are reported for the entire globe in moment magnitude. Smaller earthquakes are mostly measured on local magnitude scale, also referred to as the Richter magnitude scale.
