Live seismic activity is a quaking of the Earth’s surface, caused by the dislocation of a part of the Earth’s crust and the sudden release of a large amount of energy. The diffusion of vibrations in the layers of the surface is called a seismic wave.The earthquakes happen as a result of gathered pulls and deformations in the Earth’s crust. The area of devastation is known as the occurrence of the earthquake. The point underground, from where the energy is released, is called Hypocenter. The projection of Hypo-center on the Earth’s surface is called Epicenter. The science of earthquakes is called seismology.
