WHAT WAS THE GREATEST EARTHQUAKE? By A. I,EOKU!W Win The 15 - Volume Britannica Junior Encyclopedia for school too. The Chinese quake in 1920 covered more than 300 square miles and killed about 200,000 people. An earthquake may be a great and home. Send your questions j earthquake and do very little damage. For example, the greatest earthquake on record in the United States is hardly known to most people. It took place near the town of Now Madrid in Missouri in .1811 and 1812. There were 1,874 separate earthquake shocks felt — and some of the shocks were felt 400 miles away!

Today's winner is: Mike D'Addario, 10, Torrance, Calif. The crust of the earth is pretty solid—or it would he shaking nboul and moving up and down constantly. But there are places in the rocks of the earth's crust where it isn't strongly held together — where a "fault" exists. Along this break one rock mass might rub on another with veiy great force and friction, The energy of this rubbing is changed to vibration in the rocks — and we have an earthquake! There are two ways we can describe an earthquake in terms of bigness: one is the force of the earthquake itself, and the other is in the damage it does. Since destruction of property interest people more than technical measurements, the "great earthquakes" people remember are those where many lives were lost. The most famous one in North America was the San Francisco earthquake of 1900. A great lire followed this quake and 700 people died and properly damage amounted to about $425,000,000. One of the most famous earthquakes in Europe took place in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1755. The city was destroyed and at least 30,000 people were killed. In 1908. in Calabria and Sicily, Italy, a quake killed about 75,000 people; and in 1915 in central Italy hundreds of town and villages wore damaged and 30,000 people killed. Two great earthquakes that caused enormous damage look place in Tokyo, Japan, and Kunsu province in China, The Tokyo quake of 1023 killed more than 100,000 persons and destroyed this city and the city of Yokohama FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Doug: 1 heat my sister up every morning.
