With earthquakes, you really can't tell when or where they will occur.
Grab an emergency kit and get under a sturdy structure. Cover your head with your hands.
stop, drop, and get under a blanket.
siesmic waves are sent and an earthquake happens.
Your question is unclear in the fact that you dont tell what "what" means so frankly it can't be answered.
A Earthquake is located where the two plates (a plate boundary) meet and there is to much pressure building up and that is how and where a earthquake is and how it happens.
it is when plates move to or away from each other by nathaniel bye
