A magnitude 4.0 earthquake is only equivalent to about 15 tons of TNT explosives,

but because the Richter scale is a base-10 logarithmic scale, the amount of energy released increases quickly.

A magnitude 5.0 earthquake is about 480 Tons of TNT tons of TNT,

magnitude 6.0 is 15080 tons,

7.0 is 476879 tons, 8.0 is 15080242 tons, and 9.0 is 476879138 tons of TNT.

99 million tons of TNT is enough to destroy just about anything, and is the equivalent of about 25,000 nuclear bombs.
