Why does an earthquake occur?
There are 7 plates inside the earth that rotate continuously. The places where these plates collide more is called the fault line zone. Corners of the plates turn due to repeated hitting. When the more pressure starts to build up, the plates start breaking. Due to this, the energy inside it finds a way to come out. After this disturbance, an earthquake occurs.
