The patterns that I observed I’ve noticed that the majority of earthquakes occur along the shorelines of California all the way to the coast of Washington. There are some small amounts of seismic activity in the central part of the United States and also on the eastern shore of the United States. Most of their earthquakes range up 6 to 8 on the scale.

As time goes new technology gets developed which it makes easier and easier to predict where and when an earthquake is going to strike. A key goal of earthquake research is to increase the reliability of
