"Another explanation claims that the tectonic movement of rocks including quartz, generates a piezoelectric field which produces flashes of light," a report by rt.com quoted.

According to a study carried out in 2014, the pressure of the tectonic plates can result in breaking the pairs of negatively charged O2 atoms which drive them towards the surface of the Earth and lead to the creation of light-emitting plasma when it comes in contact with the air.

Post this disastrous earthquake, a warning about an upcoming tsunami has also been put out.
