Educational Video, Learn about Tectonic PlatesWhat is an Earthquake?

Ever wanted to know what an earthquake actually is? Well now you can find out thanks to this informative educational video.

Learn about the Earth’s tectonic plates and how they slowly move under, over or past each other. At times they get stuck and a large amount of pressure builds until all of a sudden they rip past each other and release a tremendous amount of energy which creates the seismic waves we feel as earthquakes. Understand fault lines, where earthquakes are most likely to occur and much more.
