    Earthquakes are usually caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two blocks of rock or two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little.

    Earthquake is something that happens when two blocks of the earth are suddenly slip past to one another. It is the shaking of ground caused by the sudden breaking and movement of large sections of the earth. This basically results in large stress along plate boundaries on earth.

    Mostly plate tectonics. When the plates on the earth's surface shift, you get earthquakes. Other things, like oil fracking, can also cause them.

    An earthquake is what happens when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another. ... The location below the earth's surface where the earthquake starts is called the hypocenter, and the location directly above it on the surface of the earth is called the epicenter. Sometimes an earthquake has foreshocks.

    An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of stored energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves.

    An earthquake is an intense shaking of Earth’s surface. The shaking is caused by movements in Earth’s outermost layer.

    An earthquake is caused by a sudden slip on a fault. The tectonic plates are always slowly moving, but they get stuck at their edges due to friction. When the stress on the edge overcomes the friction, there is an earthquake that releases energy in waves that travel through the earth's crust and cause the shaking that we feel.
