    Concurring the seismic hazard calculate at the seismologists partitioned all parts of earth in five seismic zones. Presently they have nullified the zone no 1 in light of the fact that there is no place in earth that won’t be influenced by earth shakes. Past records and close perception of seismic exercises help to check the zones.You can visit the site of your meteorological office to know the seismic zones of your nation.

    Contrasted with numerous different regions of the globe California doesn’t get scarcely any real seismic tremors. We have just had two noteworthy ones in the previous a quarter century. There are various exceptionally minor tremors, yet they are seldom felt. On the off chance that you are mulling over a move to California and are stressed over the tremors; don’t. Different zones of the United States have much more terrible and more continuous characteristic fiascos.
