Why does an earthquake happen?

Earthquakes occur as a result of the energy generated by sudden movements in the Earth’s outer layer. This energy creates seismic waves on the Earth’s surface, manifested by shaking or displacing the ground.


Because of the earthquake

Natural phenomena or anthropogenic causes can cause earthquakes. Geological faults often cause earthquakes. Massive gas migration, mainly methane deep within the Earth, volcanoes, landslides, and nuclear tests are the main faults.
