Seismology: Effects of Earthquakes, Loss and benefits for human being and earth

Earthquake: A great force of destruction along with the construction 

Earthquake always proves a curse for humans, but sometimes this boon is proven. Major losses and benefits due to the earthquake are:

1. There is a huge loss of public money due to an earthquake. On the earth's surface, the most vibrations are at the center and most damage is also around the center of the center. Earthquakes are very damaging near towns or dense settlements.

In Quetta in 1935, many buildings were destroyed by an earthquake and about 25,000 people were killed. A terrible earthquake occurred on January 26, 2001, in Bhuj, Gujarat, which measured 7.9 on the Richter scale.

3. Due to the earthquake, mountainous areas have considerable landslides, which cause considerable damage.
Due to the earthquake, a lot of fire occurs due to a severe earthquake.

Earthquake benefits
1. Seismic waves help us in acquiring knowledge of geo-womb.

3. Due to the earthquake, large-scale aberration or dementia on the ground floor, due to which many new topographies of mountains, plateaus, valleys etc. are born.
