"Did you know that earthquakes are made up of many smaller quakes? The violent movements of Earth's crust can damage and destroy whole cities. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake in Japan left more than 19,000 people dead. Millions more Japanese were injured or were without water, electricity, and food. In this book, you'll examine earthquakes and explore what they are, how they happen, and how to prepare for those in the future"--Back cover.
