Weather of Arabia - Many people think that "earthquake" is or is the same as "earthquake", but is there a difference between an earthquake and an earthquake?

Earthquake : It is the shaking of the earth due to the movement of tectonic plates in a way that is not strong or what is known as the “oscillatory motion” and has a strength of less than (4.9) degrees on the Richter scale. But it does not cause any significant damage.

Earthquake : a natural phenomenon resulting from the movement of tectonic plates inside the Earth due to geological influences.

The word (earthquake) suggests the intensity of the shaking and the strong earthquake to the extent that the earth from the intensity of the earthquake takes out its weights, and it is of a strength of (5.0) degrees or more on the Richter scale.

This type of earthquake causes varying damage to buildings, other facilities, and populated places, according to its degree of strength.
