An Earthquake is the result of a sudden release of energy. Earthquakes are caused when
rocks of the earth's crust, is released in a sudden jolt. Rocks crack and slip causing
the ground to vibrate. Scientists use the different speeds of seismic waves to locate
the point on the surface directly above where the earthquake originated. You should drop
to your hands and knees. Cover your head and neck with your arms. Crawl only as far as
needed to reach cover from falling materials.
