Know how an earthquake occurs
Explain that the main cause of earthquakes is the collision of plates inside the earth. There are a total of seven plates inside the earth, which keep rotating all the time. When these plates collide in one place, a fault line zone forms there and the corners of the surface bend. The pressure that builds up there due to the rotation of the corner of the surface. Because of this, the plates begin to break. Due to the breaking of these plates, the energy inside finds a way out, due to which the earth shakes and we consider it an earthquake.

earthquake intensity
Earthquakes below magnitude 2.0 on the Richter scale are kept in the micro category and such earthquakes are not felt. 8,000 earthquakes of micro category on the Richter scale are recorded every day in the world. Likewise, earthquakes of magnitude 2.0 to 2.9 are kept in the minor category. A thousand such earthquakes occur every day. Normally we don’t even feel it. Other than that, very mild category earthquakes have an intensity of 3.0 to 3.9, which are recorded 49,000 times a year.
