What is the area along a fault is risk during earthquake


If an area has a fault line underneath it then it's definitely at risk during an earthquake. Earthquakes with strong intensity can damage infrastructures such as building, houses, etc. These infrastructures can collapse and the people living near them have a high chance of being injured or even worse they might die.


Earthquakes can also occur far from the edges of plates, along faults. Faults are cracks in the earth where sections of a plate (or two plates) are moving in different directions. Faults are caused by all that bumping and sliding the plates do. They are more common near the edges of the plates.


Hope it helps

Earthquakes located in isolated areas far from human population rarely cause any deaths.
