Earthquake Brief Definition

An earthquake happens when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another. The surface where they slip is called the “fault plane” (or simply “fault”). The location below the Earth’s surface where the earthquake starts is the “hypocenter”, and the location directly above it on the surface of the Earth is the “epicenter”.
