Earthquake tremors were felt here in September this year as well.

How do earthquakes happen?
Movements in the Earth’s crust release enormous amounts of energy and produce “seismic waves”. Then there is the motion of the earth’s surface. That’s why the earth’s vibration, shaking, cracks in the earth, vibration and sudden shaking for a few moments are called earthquakes. Earthquakes cause the Earth’s surface to move back and forth or up and down. Naturally, shocks and waves generated in the underground spread in all directions within the ground and on the upper surface. The source of an underground earthquake is called the epicentre. The points on the earth’s surface immediately above the epicenter are called epicentres. Strong waves or shocks reach this center first, so the damage is maximum there. Earthquakes can be either mild or severe in nature. Mild earthquakes are far more common than destructive earthquakes on Earth.
