How to Get Ready for Earthquakes

What Makes Earthquakes?

Earthquakes occur when rocks underground suddenly breaks along a fault, which causes seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two plates of rock rub together, they stick a little. When the rocks break, the earthquake occurs. The part where the rock breaks is called the focus of the earthquake. The top of the focus is called the epicenter of the earthquake.
