How deep do earthquakes happen?



  1. 0 Votes

    Earthquakes typically occur in the Earth’s crust or upper mantle, which would range to about five hundred miles or about eight hundred kilometers.  These will generally occur with a collision of tectonic plates, resulting in one plate being forced downward into the Earth’s Mantle.

    Approximately 80,000 earthquakes occur every month, the vast majority barely even noticed.
