What is the difference between earthquake and tremor?

Jun 7th, 2014

• Tremor is the shaking or trembling of the surface of the earth before an earthquake strikes, though it is common to talk about a tremor and an earthquake in synonymous terms.

• At some places, tremors are classified as earthquakes of smaller magnitude.

• Tremors take place before an earthquake and forewarn about an impending earthquake that may cause much damage.

• Earthquakes can trigger landslides in mountainous regions and even tsunamis when the epicenter of an earthquake is below the seabed.
