If estimates are to be believed, a citizen in Nepal is more likely to be killed by an earthquake as compared to any civilian in the world. India has also experienced a series of some deadly earthquakes due to the movement of the Indian tectonic plate at the rate of 47 mm every year. Another earthquake prone country is Pakistan, which is geologically  situated atop the Eurasian and Indian tectonic plates.
El Salvador is another earthquake prone country, and has suffered immense damage due to quakes in the region. Mexico is another earthquake prone country, which has faced several earthquakes of high magnitudes in the past .
Multiple countries are readying disaster response teams and supplies to Nepal in the wake of a devastating earthquake that struck west of the capital, Kathmandu, early Saturday morning. More than 1,400 have died as a result of the earthquake, as rescuers work to find survivors and pull bodies from the rubble of collapsed buildings and infrastructure.
India has sent 135 people from its national disaster response agency, plus more than 18 tons of relief supplies, Vikas Swarup, the spokesman for the Indian Office of External Affairs tweeted. Earthquakes are a common occurrence, rumbling below Earth's surface thousands of times every day. One of the first projects that the new partnership between AIA and Architecture for Humanity will be the Disaster Plan Grant Program, which will provide grants to architects who are developing disaster plans in cities across the US. The Disaster Resiliency and Recovery Program will seek to train and provide resources to architects so that they can work with their communities and facilitate the transition from a disaster towards a long-term recovery. India's National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel and Nepal army soldiers carry a body after being recovered from a collapsed house, after the Saturday's earthquake, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The country has a long history of witnessing disastrous earthquakes since it is situated on the Pacific “Ring of fire”. In Philippines, earthquakes with high magnitude have led to deadly volcanic eruptions in the past. In September 2013, a powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.7 Richter scale had killed over 300 people causing immense damage to life and property. India, the United States, Singapore and other countries pledged relief supplies and aid personnel as the death toll continued to mount. He said 163 more disaster relief workers were en route, along with five dogs and 28 more tons of relief. With natural disasters increasing in both frequency and intensity, there is an urgent need around the world for more architects and design professionals to be trained in disaster response techniques.
When individuals pledge to use less water in their own lives, our partners carry out restoration work in the Colorado River Basin.
Applications are currently being accepted for grants of $1,000 to $2,000 to be used to train architects, engage disaster management professionals, document previous disaster response activity, or in some other way prepare for disasters. Due to  the subduction of the Philippine Sea plate beneath the Okinawa plate and Amurian plate, Japan has observed a series of several high-intensity earthquakes. Another recent earthquake of 7.9 magnitude that hit the country on April 25, caused immense damage to life and property. On October 15, 2013, an earthquake of magnitude 7.1 Richter scale had struck central Philippines leading to more than 100 deaths. In 2013, an earthquake of magnitude 6.1 Richter scale had struck Indonesia causing 35 deaths.

Above, a taxi is buried under debris from a collapsed building in Thamel, a district of Kathmandu, Nepal following the earthquake. It also authorized $1 million "to address immediate needs," Jeremy Konyndyk, director of USAID's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, wrote on Twitter.
The Indian Air Force plans to evacuate 250 people from Kathmandu, Sushma Swaraj, the foreign minister of India said. Also, earthquakes further lead to tsunamis and volcanic eruptions causing even more damage.
On December 26, 2004, an earthquake followed by a tsunami had killed around 15,000 Indians. The world is divided into seismic zones based on the tectonic plates and the magnitude of earthquakes. In April 2014, the nation was struck by an earthquake of magnitude 7.2 Richter scale leading to many casualties in Guerrero. We bring you 10 most earthquake prone countries in the world and how the quake has caused immense damage in these countries.
