In 1935, An American scientist named Charles Richter invented a way of measuring the strength of earthquakes.
|Strength (Magnitude)||0-2||2-3||3-4||4-5||5-6||6-7||7-8||8 and above|
|Effects||Not felt by people||Felt a little by people||Ceiling lights swing||Walls crack||Furniture moves||Some buildings collapse||Many buildings destroyed||Total destruction of buildings, bridges, and roads|
