As if we arranged the whole thing… following on from this week’s discussion about earthquakes, seismic waves, epicenters, S and P waves…did you feel it

Could you explain to your parents (assuming they are not seismologists) what happened to cause today’s quake?  Could you explain it to someone in Grade 1?

Was there a tsunami warning after this earthquake?  Why or why not?
