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
