Do earthquakes happen everywhere?

    While I am not a geologist.  I do believe the answer to your question is, technically speaking, yes.  Every region on earth has some level of measurable seismic activity.  Where you live will decide the  types, frequency and size of earthquakes you experience.  I live in Iowa where we do have a fault line between two techtonic plates.  But the activity between them is usually way to small to be noticed throughout everyday life.  For people who living along the pacific plate in japan and california, small earthquakes are not an uncommon thing.  The region along the fault line is also home to some of the world’s most active volcanoes named “the ring of fire”
