  • 1I have a list of statements, I need to know if they are True or False.?

    1. during an earthquake , underground structures move as a unit with the surrounding rock , so the meters are relatively safe during an earthquake . 2. If a town is sitting right at the epicenter of an earthquake , the Richter scale recorded a magnitude of about 7 . 3. Earthquakes are fairly evenly distributed throughout the earth's crust . 4. modern scale of earthquake magnitude based on the degree of damage . 5. A 4 on the Richter scale is twice as strong as the earthquake shaking 2. 6. adjacent blocks along the San Andreas fault move horizontally . 7.
