What damage does it cause?
In Alaska in 1964 a magnitude of 9.2 earthquake jarred the earth so strongly it caused boats to sink in Louisiana. There was a gigantic crack in the ground. Also a few destroyed buildings and apartments. The 9.2 damage is on a Richter scale a Richter scale is a scale that measures the destruction of a eathquake for example a 2.5 on a Richter scale doesn't do much distruction but a 9.2 does a lot of damage.
The Richter scale
A Richter scale is a scale that measures the damage of a earthquake. I told you basically everything you need to in the title what damage it did but there is another example of a earthquake the largest ever recorded earthquake happens in Chile on May 24,1960 it was a magnitude of 9.5 wich on the Richter scale is a lot of destruction.
How to reduce the impact on humans?
You have the earthquakes do less damage by staying inside of a building instead of outside because if you are outside in a earthquake then you have a better chance of a building falling on you. Inside of the building you should move to a chair or a table or something to stay safe.
