What is Earthquake? | Tectonic Plates | Seismic Waves | Richter Scale | Ring of Fire

An earthquake is a sudden shaking of the Earth’s surface caused by the movement of tectonic plates or other geological factors. It releases accumulated energy in the form of seismic waves, leading to ground vibrations that can range from mild tremors to powerful disruptions with potential for damage.
