What exactly is an Earthquake?

An earthquake is when two tectonic plates rub against each other cause the ground to shake.


There are three types of earthquakes:

1)They pull apart from each other

2)Push into each other

3)Scraping against each other.


New Zealand probably get lots of the convergent earthquakes because they are the ones that make mountains. New Zealand has lots of mountains!


You can keep safe by dropping to the floor and holding onto a chair or a table and cover your head. Keep away from anything that might fall like glass, boxes or shelves.
