What does the depth mean?


The depth is how deep the Earthquake hit ... The deeper the better, coz that means it's further away from the surface, causing minimal damage ...

However, if it's not very deep then it has the potential of causing damage to buildings and people.

A good way of explaining depth/magnitude in laymans terms is to think of Earthquake waves as a balloon. The rupture is beneath the surface so the less of a radiating area it hits above the better, this minimises the wave energy passing across the surface as there's less displacement but also reduces the effects of S-Waves rebounding from lateral/subsurface features.

Earthquakes are often compared to ripples on a pond, and this is one of the biggest "no-no's" in the study of Seismology. The USGS Shakemap the past few years is excellent however for describing the balloon theosis. Where you can see the shallower quakes radiate the energy in a more concentrated area. While quakes 300 miles in depth or more can affect thousands of miles radiantly, but the concentration is sparse so it barely registers on the surface.

After the tragic disaster in Japan, all the nuclear power plants around the World should be checked for safety etc. Coz anything can happen anywhere.

Exactly!!! It is criminal to even think about it, in my opinion. No nukes, nowhere in the world, and the world will instantly be a better place.
