Let us inform that on 30 September last month, earthquake tremors were felt in some parts of Northeast including Manipur.

The main reason for the occurrence of earthquakes is the collision of plates inside the earth. There are seven plates inside the earth which are constantly rotating. 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 twisting of the corners of the surface, pressure builds up there and the plates start breaking. Due to the breaking of these plates, the energy inside finds a way out, due to which the earth shakes and we consider it an earthquake.
