Of ten most tragic natural catastrophes in the history of the world, half of them are earthquakes. They arise as a result of stresses on the earth's crust and movements of rock layers, the effect of which is energy transforming into seismic waves. Some of them reach the surface of the Earth and destroy everything on their path.
Of all the earthquakes that have been recorded in the history of the world as the perpetrators of the greatest damage:
- Aleppo (Syria) - 1138, 8.5 degrees Richter scale, shocks were felt all the way to Damascus (about 400 km away), about 230 thousand people died.
- Damghan (Iran) - 856, 7.9 on the Richter scale, about 200,000 people died.
- Port-Au-Prince (Haiti) - 2010, 7 levels of the Richter scale, one of the most tragic disasters of our time, in which 316,000 people were and several million have lost their homes.
- San Francisco (USA) - 1906, 7.8 degrees Richter scale, the earthquake lasted 40 seconds, but its effects (including fires) are considered the worst catastrophe in the history of the United States and the cause of significant inhibition of California's development.
