Strong earthquake tremors were felt in Afghanistan. National Center for Seismology (NCS) gave this information. NCS said that the intensity of this earthquake was measured at 4.1. According to the information, strong earthquakes have occurred in Afghanistan before also. Thousands of people have also died due to the earthquake. However, there has been no information about any loss of life in this earthquake.

Reason for earthquake?
Actually, there are 7 plates inside the earth, which keep rotating continuously. The place where these plates collide is called zone fault line. Due to repeated collision, the corners of the plates bend. When there is too much pressure the plates start breaking. After this the energy below finds a way to come out and due to this earthquake occurs.

What is the scale for measuring earthquakes?
Earthquakes are measured on the Richter scale. It is called Richter Magnitude Test Scale. On this, earthquakes are measured on a scale from 1 to 9. An earthquake is measured from its center i.e. epicentre. It is used to measure the intensity of the energy released from within the earth during an earthquake.
