If your asking for the definition of an earthquake.
An earthquake is a sudden movement of the Earth, caused by movement between tectonic plates. For hundreds of millions of years, the forces of plate tectonics have shaped the Earth as the huge plates that form the Earth's crust slowly move over, under, and past each other. Sometimes the movement is gradual. At other times, the plates are locked together, unable to release the accumulating energy. When the accumulated energy grows strong enough, the plates break free causing an earthquake. If the earthquake occurs in a populated area, it may cause many deaths and injuries, and extensive property damage.
