the Epizentrum is perpendicular from the earthquake stove, the Hypozentrum, on the earth's surface projected center of an earthquake and marks the earthquake stove on the map. The effects of a quake on the environment hang particularly from the distance to the Epizentrum,in addition, of the geological condition of the area off. With strong earthquakes the largest damage to buildings is to be expected in the proximity of the Epizentrums.
