What caused the powerful earthquake in Morocco? The scientific explanation.

The powerful earthquake in Morocco on September 9, 2023, was caused by the collision of the African plate and the Eurasian plate. The African plate is moving northeast at a speed of about 2 centimeters per year. The Eurasian plate, on the other hand, is moving southwest at a speed of about 1 centimeter per year. This movement of the plates causes compression of the Earth’s crust, which can lead to earthquakes.

The epicenter of the earthquake was located in the province of Al Haouz, about 70 kilometers south of Marrakech. The hypocenter was located at a depth of 18.5 kilometers. The magnitude of the earthquake was 6.8 on the Richter scale. The earthquake caused the deaths of over 1,000 people and the injuries of over 1,200. It also caused significant damage to infrastructure and buildings.

The earthquake was felt throughout Morocco, Algeria, and Spain. It was also felt in parts of Italy and France. Earthquakes are a natural phenomenon that can occur anywhere in the world. Morocco is located in a seismically active zone, so it is subject to frequent earthquakes. To reduce the risk of damage from earthquakes, it is important to build buildings that can withstand earthquakes. It is also important to have an emergency plan in case of an earthquake.
