Both of these earthquakes are considered minor earthquakes. Earthquakes that register 3.0 to 3.9 are considered minor. An earthquake that measures 6.0 is considered to be strong and a 8.0 earthquake or higher is considered to be a "great earthquake".


What Causes an Earthquake?

According to "The tectonic plates are always slowly moving, but they get stuck at their edges due to friction. When the stress on the edge overcomes the friction, there is an earthquake that releases energy in waves that travel through the earth's crust and cause the shaking that we feel."
