What is earthquake?

An earthquake is a shaking of the


ground caused by the sudden
breaking and movement of large
sections (tectonic plates) of the
earth's rocky outermost crust. The
edges of the tectonic plates are
marked by faults (or fractures).
Most earthquakes occur along the
fault lines when the plates slide
past each other or collide against
each other.

The shifting masses send out


shock waves that may be
powerful enough to

alter the surface of the


Earth, thrusting up cliffs
and opening great cracks in
the ground and
