How do earth quakes form?


2 Answers

Earthquakes are usually caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two blocks of rock or two plates are rubbing against each other they stick a little. When the rocks break,the earthquake occurs.
