What keeps earthquakes from happening on the east?



  1. 0 Votes

    Earthquakes are generally caused by the shifting of the plates that make up the earth’s crust. On the west coast there is a fault line where to plates meet and move (in fact it cuts right through California) thus cause the high frequency of quakes there. On the east coast on the other hand there is no such joint so quakes are very rare.
