An earthquake is a natural calamity. It is the result of sudden release of energy that creates seismic waves. It causes much havoc to our life and wealth. Earthquake is measured with a seismometer. The surface area where the quake occurs undergoes serious changes. Buildings collapse and crumble within seconds. Those who are trapped are crushed to death. The aftermath of earthquake is very terrible for the survivors who lose their near and dear ones. They suffer from traumas throughout their lives. It endangers our existence and survival on earth. Due to movement of the tectonic plates of the earth, earthquake occurs frequently. Earthquake cannot be prevented, but we can minimize the damages of earthquake. We can make preventive measures by ensuring earthquake resistance building code compulsory.
