Know why earthquakes happen
You would know that the earth is mainly made up of four layers. It includes inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. There is a sudden movement in the outer layer of the earth due to which the energy generated is the cause. This energy produces earthquake waves on the surface of the earth. These waves appear by shaking the earth. There are two reasons for the occurrence of earthquakes – natural or anthropogenic. Most earthquakes are caused by geological faults. These major faults are large amounts of gas migration, volcanoes, methane deep within the Earth, landslides or nuclear tests. An earthquake with a magnitude of 3 Richter is normal while an earthquake of 7 Richter is causing serious damage.
