Causes of Earthquake
The movement of tectonic plates is a geological fault that causes the earth’s crust to break, resulting in an earthquake.
Volcanic activities can cause disruptions on the earth’s surface, causing shifts in the tectonic plates, and resulting in earthquakes.
Human activities such as mining, tunnel, construction, etc. can produce seismic waves, which can cause earthquakes.
The force that releases when a nuclear or chemical device is launched can cause earthquakes.
