Earthquakes

Special | 28m 49s

Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world the ground shakes. Most earthquakes are too tiny to be felt, but some earthquakes can be devastating. Why do earthquakes happen? What should you do if the earth shakes? Can we predict when they will happen? Host Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guests, Jeffrey Johnson and Dennis Feeney, will answer students’ questions about earthquakes.
