An earthquake is a vibration or shock that occurs on the surface of the Earth.Earthquakes are usually caused by the movement of the Earth's crusts (Earthplates). The word earthquake is also used to indicate the origin of the earthquakeoccurrence. The plates always collide and cause earthquake. There are 5 kinds of earthquake:1.
Volcanic earthquake
 This earthquake caused by magma activity, which usually occurs before theeruption of volcano. If the activity of the volcano becomes higher, it willcause an explosion that also will cause of earthquake. The earthquake is onlyfelt in the around volcanoes.
2. Tectonics earthquake
 This earthquake caused by tectonic activity, a shift in plate tectonicplate suddenly has a very small or very large strength. This earthquakeproduced a lot of damage or natural disasters on earth, a strongearthquake vibration can spread to other parts of the earth. Tectonicearthquake caused by a removable is happening because of platetectonic plate shift like a rubber band being pulled and releasedabruptly. The theory of plate tectonics (plate tectonics) explains thatthe earth consists of several layers of rock, most areas of the crust willfloat and float in layers like snow. Layers collided with each other. Thisis what causes tectonic earthquake.
Earthquake Collision
 The earthquake was caused by a meteor or asteroid collision that fellto earth, an earthquake of this is rare.
Earthquake Ruins
 This earthquake usually occurs in limestone areas or in areas of mining, and this earthquakes are rare and localized.
Artificial Earthquakes
Artificial earthquake is the earthquake that caused by humanactivities, such as dynamite explosion, nuclear or hammers that hit theearth's surface.
