Shouldnt an earthquake of a 5.4 magnitude be felt by everyone?

So, I get a high-pitched ring in my right ear, and only my right ear never the left, there’s always an earthquake within the next 24 hours. The longer it lasts, the higher the magnitude. It only rings when there’s gonna be one with a magnitude of 5.0+
My ear rang 5 times yesterday. The times were;
3: 37 a.m. (This one was the longest out of all of them)
8: 55 a.m.
9: 23 a.m.
12: 11 a.m.
5: 19 p.m.
I looked up recent earthquakes, and found this site. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_big.php

There were 5 earthquakes!
This has been going on for about 5 years now, I’m 13.
Has anyone else had this happen?
Anyone have and idea as to why it does this??
Me and my brother’s crack up about it and say I’m a catfish! Hahaha!!!!:)
LOL Superficialidade (Sorry if mispelled!!!!)

like a 6.5 magnitude

A) The Richter scale allows us to make predictions of earthquake damage.
B) Each step of the scale represents a 30-fold increase in energy released.
C) The Richter scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake.
D) Earthquakes with equal ratings do not have the same damage.

I’ve been warned that an earthquake of 7.2 magnitude will hit where I live. The epicenter is a bit far but what if you live on the fault line? Will it be very strong? What happens if there are high-rise buildings on top of a fault line but not directly on the epicenter? Will it fall/topple down? My parents work in high-rise buildings near the fault line. I’m really scared. Thanks 🙂

If one earthquake has a magnitude of 5 on the richter scale and a second earthquake has a magnitude of 6 compare the intensities of the two earthquakes.

I know this has something to do with logarithims and the answer is 60 DB, I just dont know how to arrive at the answer, thanks.

How is the magnitude of an earthquake recorded?

If you can answer, could you try to do it like an excellence/A+ style question, using the words ‘seismograph’ and ‘seismogram.’

I wanna know the magnitude of the earthquakes and how many have happened since 2010.

Im doing A2 geography and my summer homework is a mock exam.. the 70 mark one. Its on Tectonic Hazards, the title is:
”With reference to examples, explain how physical processes control the occurence and magnitude of tectonic hazards. (70)”

If anyone has any reliable sources about case studies such as 2004 Tsumani or Haiti earthquake id be grateful!!

I only know that Richter scale 3 will shake 0.1 mm at a distance of 100 kilometer. It increases by ten fold for each Richter scale magnitude. Give example how it will vary according the distance of epicenter. They say it is Inverse Square of the distance. Please explain with a model calculation. If an earthquake is measured from a distance of 2000 kilometers from epicenter and if the magnitude is 9 in Richter scale what will be the maximum shaking. Will the S wave pass through sea water.?
