The frequency with which a certain magnitude earthquake occurs is commonly defined by an earthquake. On average, an earthquake of magnitude 2 or less occurs several hundred times per day around the planet. Every month, a large earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 to 7.9 occurs somewhere in the world. An earthquake, on the other hand, happens once a year and has a magnitude of 8.0 or greater.
The earthquake is a natural hazard. As discussed above, not all the parts of the globe necessarily experience major shocks. The quakes of high magnitude, i.e. 8+ are quite rare; they occur once in 1-2 years whereas those of ‘tiny’ types occur almost every minute.
