Shocks and tremors

When any two things collide with each other, energy is transferred from one thing to other and also the energy is dissipated in small or large amounts which can be in the form of heat,sound or light.

Since there was a terror of earthquakes in our areas due to repeated tremors and collision of tectonic plates,in the last of April.Although these earthquakes are not so bad from the nature's point of view because it is the way by which earth releases excess of it's energy into the space as it maintains a usual shape of the earth.

I am bit curious to know about these tectonic plates.What forms of energy are dissipated or transferred during the collision of tectonic plates,which causes so much of destruction?
