I Tremble InvoluntarilyRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I tremble involuntarily
whenever something breaks.
Scientists hope with some time
they'll learn from their mistakes.
Faults are to blame for my power
I helped to form the Earth
Not realizing this simple fact
people underestimate my worth.
I can be quite dangerous;
I'm the start of many ends;
when I'm 12 or higher,
your foundation bends.
When a section of rock along a fault line breaks, an earthquake is triggered. Scientists learn from earthquakes how to predict them.
Faults (cracks) in the Earth's surface cause earthquakes. Earthquakes cause movement along faults and moved the tectonic plates to their current locations.
Earthquakes can be very dangerous and cause many deaths. On the Mercalli scale of measuring earthquakes, an earthquake measured 12 will create noticeable bends and waves in the earth's surface.
