8. Nepal (2015) 1:57​
The district in Nepal, Sindhupalchok, was hit hard by the massive April 25, 2015 earthquake: a 7.8 magnitude quake that struck just northwest of the capital of Kathmandu.

7. Trinidad and Tobago (2018) 2:49​
Trinidad and Tobago experienced a 5.9 aftershock Wednesday morning, just 24 hours after a 7.3 earthquake rocked the area.

6. Japan (2011) 3:32​
Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011, also called Great Sendai Earthquake or Great Tōhoku Earthquake, severe natural disaster that occurred in northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011.

5. Mexico (2017) 4:07​
The 2017 Puebla earthquake struck on 19 September 2017 with an estimated magnitude of Mw  7.1 and strong shaking for about 20 seconds.

4. Alaska (2018) 5:09​

1. Nepal (2015) 6:58​
The April 2015 Nepal earthquake (also known as the Gorkha earthquake) killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. It occurred at 11 : 56 Nepal Standard Time on 25 April 2015, with a magnitude of 7.8Mw or 8.1Ms and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VIII (Severe).

A so-called earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth's lithosphere that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes can range in size from those that are so pretty weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to propel objects and people into the air, and wreak destruction across entire big cities. The seismicity, or seismic activity, of an area is the frequency, type, and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. The word tremor is also used for non-earthquake seismic rumbling.

At the Earth's surface, earthquakes certainly manifest themselves by shaking and displacing or disrupting the ground. When the epicenter of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed may be displaced sufficiently to cause a tsunami. Earthquakes can also trigger landslides and occasionally, certain volcanic activity.
