Some earthquakes are so powerful they change the landscape. Many are so weak people can't feel them. Even with advances in science, seismologists still can't accurately predict when an earthquake will strike. However, we now know a lot more about where an earthquake is likely to occur. In this book, readers will learn about plate tectonics, faults, and seismic waves. They'll read about historic earthquakes, see photographs of the aftermath, and learn how to prepare for an earthquake's mighty tremors.
