The seismic waves in the earth's crust creates earthquakes when there is a release of energy. It destroys homes, buildings, spliting the ground apart, and kills people and animals. Earthquakes negatively effect people by destroying their homes and leaving them homeless. The damage caused by Earthquakes also depends on the fault type. There was an Earthquake in Valentine, Texas in 1931. It affected the people by destroying buildings and homes.
