Earthquakes can transmit energy when the rocks on the fault line move really fast. The movement will create a vibration that continues like a wave releasing energy through the ground.

When the rocks along a fault suddenly move, vibrations occur and wave transmits energy through the earth.
Most of the energy from an earthquake powers the actual rupture and earth movement or is dissipated as heat due to friction between the moving fault blocks. Less than 10% of an earthquake's
