    They don't all happen at night

    They don't always. The big one that damaged the town where I lived in Italy happened at 9 am and there were hundreds of aftershocks both day and night.

    Because, half the earth is on always in darkness. So most of the times someone will be in light and another will be in the dark.

    Depends where you are when the earthquake - or other natural event happens. For the most part, they don't - they just happen when they happen.

    For example, there was recently a large earthquake in Albania.


    It happened at 4am, Albania time. Early morning.

    There was a very strong earthquake in Alaska in 1964 at 5:36pm. Early evening.

    There was a strong earthquake in California in 1989 at 5:04pm. Early evening.

    There was a strong earthquake in Mexico City in 1985 at 1:14pm Mexico time. Mid-day.

    There was a strong earthquake in Hawalii in May, 2018... at 12:33 (noon-is) local time... Mid-day...

    The list is endless. You might want to re-think your hypothesis... but...
