Question and answer
how is the focus of an earthquake related to the epicenter?
The earthquake focus is the point where rocks first rupture on a fault causing an earthquake. Directly above the focus on the Earth's surface is the earthquake epicenter. Earthquake waves start at he focus and travel outward in all directions. [ Earthquake waves do not originate at the epicenter. Most news stories on earthquakes will list the epicenter of an earthquake and then tell how deep the
earthquake was from the epicenter. ]
