Earthquake damage. Damaged buildings after an earthquake. Rubble lies in the street, whilst furniture has been moved out of the houses before they collapse. Earthquakes are caused when sections of the earth (tectonic plates) move against each other to relieve stress. Photographed at Watsonville in California, USA, in 1990. California lies on the boundary between the North American and Pacific plates.
