Why do earthquakes happen?
Small and big earthquakes keep happening every year in different areas of the world. Experts believe that earthquakes occur more than 20 thousand times every year around the world. Some of these are so minor that they cannot even be recorded on the seismograph. Some earthquakes are so powerful that they cause terrible destruction. The upheaval inside the earth is said to be the reason for the earthquake. There is also a fact that these earthquakes occur in millions, but most of the tremors are mild and they are not detected.
