Why does earthquake occur so frequently?

Significantly, the upper surface of the Earth is composed of 7 tectonic plates. Whenever these plates collide with each other, the earthquake conditions arise. During the earthquake, these plates try to penetrate each other's area. In the meantime, the energy that is generated will keep the earth moving or tearing. Many times if the intensity of the earthquake remains intact then there is a danger of coming of an aftershock for a long time.

What is the significance of the intensity of an earthquake, how much is the effect?

- Seismograph only reveals the earthquake on the 0 to 1.9 Ritcher Scale.

- There is a slight vibration when the earthquake occurs at 2 to 2.9 meters.

- If there is an earthquake on a 3 to 3.9-liter scale, then it has an impact as if truck passes near you.

- 4 to 4.9 Richter scale can cause windows to break when earthquakes occur. Tangled frames can fall on the walls.

- Furniture can move when earthquake occurs at 5 to 5.9 Richter scale.
