Do earthquakes have direction?

    Yes, in a sense. Earthquakes radiate from an epicenter. So the do have a direction, from the epicenter out, but also move in every direction like ripples in a pond. If you want more details on the different waves forms that seismic waves take check out the link below.

    Earthquakes do not propagate uniformly like ripples in a pond. Their speed and direction are both influenced by the orientation of the fault that moved, and by the materials through which the seismic waves travel.
