Why does earthquake occur?
The earth is divided into many layers and below the ground there are many platter plates. These plates are stuck together, but sometimes these plates slip, due to which there is an earthquake. Many times it vibrates more and its intensity increases, due to this many water fires have come on the earth. In India, some zones have been determined on the basis of geographical movement occurring in the Earth’s crusts and in some places it is more and some places less.
On the basis of these possibilities, India has been divided into 5 zones, which tells where the highest earthquake risk is in India. It has the highest probability of earthquake in Zone-5 and less than 4, 3 less than that.
What to do and what not to do when an earthquake occurs?
1. As soon as you feel the tremors, you should sit under a strong table and hold it tightly.
2. As long as the tremors continue or you are not sure that you can get out safely, then sit in the same place.
