CNN has launched a contest to find the world’s top five earthquakes and has invited the public to send in their own predictions for which ones are the largest.
The winner of the competition, called “Which Are The Biggest Earthquakes In The World?” will be chosen by CNN’s team of geologists.
CNN will then analyze and grade each earthquake’s magnitude and area.
The team will also select a winner, and that winner will be announced in March.
The five-year contest started on Tuesday.
Here are the top five:1.
2011 Tohoku quake: 6.1 magnitude, 3,000-meter (14,000 feet) deep2.
2011 Mombasa earthquake: 6 magnitude, 5,000 meters (16,000 yards) deep3.
2011 Kathmandu earthquake: 5.9 magnitude, 1,800 meters (6,400 feet)deep4.
2010 Tsunami of Japan: 7.5 magnitude, 4,000 kilometers (3,100 miles)deep5.
2010 Kobe earthquake: 7 magnitude, 7.2 kilometers (4,400 miles) deep.1.
A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Japan in June 2011, measuring 6.2 by 6.4 kilometers (2.8 by 3.1 miles).
It was the biggest quake ever recorded in the country, measuring 8.1 on the Richter scale.
It shook the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and damaged buildings at the Fukushima plant complex, with the epicenter in the city of Mombasaki.
It killed at least 13 people and injured more than 200 others.
Scientists said the quake was the strongest quake in Japan in a century.2.
A major earthquake in central Japan in May 2009 caused a series of landslides that destroyed at least six buildings, caused the deaths of more than 400 people, and killed at to nearly 200.
It was followed by a series, more or less continuous, of tsunami waves.
Three months later, a magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck the Fukushima region, destroying buildings, and causing a massive tsunami.
The tsunami hit the coast of Japan, and the tsunami was the most powerful earthquake in the nation’s history.3.
A 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit northwestern Japan in September 2011.
It hit a village on the edge of a mountain range, killing nearly 100 people, injured more 200, and destroyed more than 70 buildings.
The quake caused the tsunami that devastated the coast.4.
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck northeastern Japan in April 2012, triggering a tsunami that damaged more than 10,000 people and damaged nearly 10,500 other buildings.
It triggered a tsunami wave that damaged some buildings and killed more than 2,000 others.5.
A 10.4 magnitude earthquake in April 2014 hit northeastern Japan, shaking buildings, damaging over 40,000 homes, and killing more than 11,500 people.
It prompted a tsunami and tsunami wave.
