A powerful earthquake can cause landslides, tsunamis, flooding, and other. The immediate cause of most shallow earthquakes is the sudden release of stress along a fault, or fracture in the earth's crust, resulting in movement of the opposing blocks of rock past one another.

These movements cause vibrations to pass through and around the earth in wave form, just as ripples are generated when a pebble is dropped into water. magnitude earthquake.
