why do earthquakes happen
The collision of plates inside the earth is the main reason for earthquakes. Seven plates are found inside the earth. They keep moving around. When these plates collide at some place, a fault line zone is formed there and the corners of the surface are twisted. Due to the turning of the corners of the surface, pressure builds up there and the plates start breaking. When the plates break, the energy inside starts finding a way out. This is why earthquakes happen.
