The effects of an earthquake depend on many factors, not just the amount of energy released at the focus. What are two other factors that can increase the damage caused by an earthquake? sediments that contain water and a shallower depth of the earthquake's focus loose sediments and a greater depth of the earthquake's focus solid bedrock and a closer position to the epicenter of the earthquake steep slopes and a position that is farther from the epicenter of the earthquake

Epicenter-The point on the Earth's surface located directly above the focus of anearthquake. Focus-The location where the earthquake begins. The ground ruptures at this spot, then seismic waves radiate outward in all directions.
