Earthquakes results from the movement of earth’s tectonic plates, while volcanoes are caused by the release of molten rock and ash from Earth’s interior. Earthquakes occur when the stored energy in the form of stress within the tectonic plates is released suddenly, while a volcano forms when magma rises through the crust and reaches Earth’s surface.
