The destructive energy of an earthquake is measured on a scale called the Richter Scale. Yes, it would be recorded by seismograph because this scale has the readings from 1 to 10. No it is not likely to cause much damage as earthquakes of magnitude higher than 5 is considered destructive in nature.
