The place where the earthquake starts, below the surface of the earth, is called the hypocenter. 3. The place above Hypocenters is called the epicenter. The earthquake will be the strongest at this point on the surface. 4. A device called seismograph is used to measure the size of the waves. The size of the waves is called the magnitude. 5. The powerful earthquakes in the ocean called Tsunami. A tsunami causes a chain of fast-moving waves. The waves can destroy houses and even inundate whole towns. 6.
