Earthquake was the shaking of the surface of the Earth, with often mystical causes and consequences, despite a natural occurrence in places like Southern California[1] (including the cities of Sunnydale and Los Angeles). They had the tendency to either prevent an apocalypse, swallowing religious buildings whole or even imprisoning dangerous individuals; break an containment and freeing an individual; or act as portents, announcing prophecies or even apocalyptic commotions of the Hellmouth.
