Earthquakes are a type of geological natural disasters that occur when the Earth's tectonic faults shift and move. Large earthquakes occur on the tectonic fault lines, while small earthquakes occur outside the fault line. This type of geological natural disaster is considered to be one of the most dangerous disasters to occur, due to causing severe damage to buildings and killing numerous people.
After a massive solar flare caused the Earth's core to heat up its temperature so high, the crust of the Earth became unstable, which triggered the world's ending in 2012. The tectonic plates destablised, due to the crust becoming even more unstable, which allowed large earthquakes to occur both on and off the tectonic fault lines. When the 2012 apocalypse began on December 21st 2012, massive earthquakes of unprecendented strength began wrecking havoc and destruction around the Earth's continents, causing major damage and killing millions of humans. The magnitude of the corresponding quakes triggered gigantic tsunamis that flooded the whole planet.
