As tectonic plates pound together at a fault line, the rocks on both side stretch to take up a certain amount of pressure. If the pressure becomes enormous, the rocks smash thus releasing shock waves that quake the surface. Buildings then lean and topple and in some cases fires may set off as gas and electricity lines are ripped apart.
