How depth factors into earthquake damage
from Enid News
Depth factors into how much damage an earthquake may cause. Temblors of the same magnitude will generally have less effect at the surface if they are deep, Oklahoma Geological Survey Director Jeremy Boak said. In some cases, the amount of shaking that goes on is conditioned by ground conditions, soil conditions and things like that, Boak said.
