What causes earthquakes?
I me and myself yeah yeah you show off
An earthquake is violent shaking of the
Earth's crust
The Earth's crust is a hard outer covering made up of many
pieces called tectonic plates

These plates are always moving
However, the motion is very slow in a year
They move only 2 to 5 centimeters

My hair grows faster than their movements
Mostly when these tectonic plates move
They brush against each other without causing great damage
However, sometimes they get stuck and cannot easily slide
Against each other
But the plates still keep pushing
Thus creating pressure eventually the
Pressure builds up so much that one of
The plates suddenly moves above the
Other or they may crash into each other
Causing the crust to shake violently
Thus creating an earthquake

Meanings: Did you know the continents were formed because of an earthquake!
