Do earthquakes change the structure of the earth?

    Yes they do. Earthquakes are caused by the shifting plates on the Earth’s surface. These plates either rub, push or pull against/from one another. Billions of years ago, the Earth’s continents were all connected, but they moved to their present configuration through earthquakes and other seismic phenomenon. The science behind this is called plate techtonics. PBS has a great deal of information on this. Check out the link.
