These earthquakes are caused by the continuous rotation of seven plates inside the earth. The places where these plates collide are called fault lines. They often collide. This causes the plates to break. Due to their disintegration the energy inside tries to come out. In this order it finds a way. This causes the ground to vibrate in that area. This is called an earthquake.
