  • Hey Mum,What is that shaking?
  • It is an earthquake. It causes the ground to shake!
  • How long will it last?
  • Usually 10 - 30 seconds but the ground continues to move for weeks after the earthquake!
  • What causes an earthquake?
  • Earthquakes occur when large plates of rock on the Earth's surface, called tectonic plates, move or collide!
  • What should we do?
  • First we stay calm and don't panic.
  • As we are inside we have to move away from windows and external-walls and drop to the ground.
  • I get it! We could also go under a strong desk or table to take cover!
  • If we were outside?
  • We would find a clear spot away from buildings, trees and power lines and drop to the ground
