Why does an Earthquake happen?

The earth is divided into many layers, and there are many types of plates under the ground. These plates are stuck together, but sometimes these plates slip, due to which earthquake occurs. Sometimes it vibrates more, and its intensity increases. In India, some zones have been decided based on the geographical movement in the inner layers of the earth and in some places, it is more and some areas less.

Based on these possibilities, India has been divided into five zones, which tells that India is most prone to earthquakes. In this zone-5, earthquakes are most likely to have earthquakes, and in 4 less than that, three is less than that.

What to do and what not to do in case of an earthquake?

  1. As soon as you feel the earthquake’s tremors, you should sit under a strong table and hold it tightly.
  2. Stay seated until the tremors continue or you are sure you can get out safely.
  3. If you live in a tall building, stay away from the window.
  4. If you are in bed, stay there and hold it tightly. Keep a pillow on your head.
  5. If you are outside, move to an empty place… that is, away from buildings, houses, trees, electric poles.
