      Very small earthquakes are rated up to about on the Richter scale. Moderate earthquakes rated up to magnitude 5 can cause minor damage. Earthquakes of magnitude 6 and higher are major earthquakes. They can cause widespread damage and loss of life. Today there are many different magnitude scales in addition to the Richter scale. A seismic hazard is the probability that an earthquake will occur in a given geographic area, within a given window of time, and with ground motion intensity exceeding a given threshold. With a hazard thus estimated, risk can be assessed and included in such areas as building codes for standard buildings, designing larger buildings and infrastructure projects, land use planning and determining.
