Why do earthquakes occur? Not a mystery, believe me!

2 How does an Earthquake occur?

The Earth is really nonchalant when we look at it in a normal way, but below our bases, the Earth is relentlessly fluctuating. Below the earth’s surface are the Tectonic plates. These plates, when they slide one upon other, release a force causing the earth to vibrate. This is the reason why, earthquakes are also called as temblors. This energy travels at a greater speed, bursting in all ways. Most of the time, it does not create any loss to mankind, but when the magnitude increases, the loss is reflected in the lives of mankind.
