THE THIRD PLANET STUDY GUIDE #4  NATURAL DISASTERS   What is the difference between natural earthquakes and induced earthquakes? Induced earthquakes come from  areas  of petroleum production. Triggered Earthquakes  by putting water in the fault lines that mixed with the rocks making the rocks break and  earthquakes occur.      Where and along what geologic structures do natural Texas earthquakes occur? West Texas-Rio Grande Rift Panhandle Balcones      Is there potential for a great earthquake in Texas? Why or why not?     We are able to forecast but not predict earthquakes by looking at our records where  earthquakes have occurred moving certain  parts  of the tectonic plates in certain area.  Provided that the information is correct we are able to look along the fault line and  predict where the next earthquake should occur when there hasn’t been on in that area.
