Preference :

Earthquakes are naturally occurring broad-banded vibratory ground motions, due to a number of causes, including tectonic ground motions, volcanism, landslides, rockburst, and man-made explosions, the most important of which are caused by the fracture and sliding of rock along tectonic faults within the earth’s crust. For most earthquakes, shaking and/or ground failure are the dominant and most widespread agents of damage. Shaking near the actual earthquake rupture lasts only during the time when the fault ruptures, a process that takes seconds or at most a few minutes.
