"Earthquakes" in context

Earthquakes are one of the most destructive and fearsome natural disasters on the planet. An earthquake occurs when the ground shaking is caused by a sudden release of energy from within the Earth's crust. Earthquakes can cause tremendous damage due to the intense shaking of the ground and the force of the shockwaves that accompany them. Earthquakes can occur without warning, though there are some telltale signs. These include foreshocks, which often precede a larger earthquake.

When an earthquake strikes, buildings can be destroyed and infrastructure can be damaged. People can be injured or even killed depending on the intensity of the quake and the buildings' fragility.
