Why does an earthquake occur?
Our earth is mainly made up of four layers. Inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The crust and upper mantle are called lithospheres. After this, they find their place and in such a situation, one plate comes under the other.
The intensity of the earthquake is gauged by the waves of energy emanating from its center (epicenter). This wave, which extends for hundreds of kilometers, vibrates and cracks in the earth. If the depth of the earthquake is shallow, the energy exiting from it is very close to the surface, causing terrible destruction. But the earthquakes that come in the depth of the earth do not cause much damage to the surface. A tsunami arises when there is an earthquake in the sea.
