On Tuesday the 29th of September 2009, a huge tsunami hit Samoa – as well as several other islands – and impacted many, leaving a path of destruction . Tsunamis are big waves that are generated from earthquakes, or volcanic eruptions that occur in the ocean . The tsunami – in the case of Samoa – was caused by an underwater earthquake . An earthquake is when the Earth’s surface shakes in response to the sudden release of energy in its lithosphere which then creates seismic waves .
In 2004 in Indonesia a 9.0 earthquake hit and created a tsunami that killed about 250,00 people and the author Richard Lewis recreaded the story in the killing sea because he is interested in the mysterious ocean. First on page 48 the narrator said “for as far as Ruslan could see, meulaboh had become a lake, clogged with floating debris”. this is true because meulaboh was one of the first places that the tsunami hit so all the ocean water was there and went through many cities and destroyed pretty much everything there.throughout the book Ruslan finds dead bodies and so did many of the rebels, it said that on page 49 the narrator said”across the way, ruslan can see dozens of bodies crumpled on second floor stairs of the shopping mall.” because of the tsunami, about 250,000 people had died so there would be many dead bodies everywhere and inside of every building, but especially in the shopping mall because people like to go to the mall so there would be a lot of people there.

Tsunamis are giant ocean waves that are triggered by an earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. These ocean waves will grow in height as they travel inland, due to the depth of the ocean decreasing. The world responded with donations and relief efforts to countries affected which included Indonesia, Thailand, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Burma and Maldives.
The sections will slip, relieving the pressure and creating an earthquake as the energy that was held in the two sections is transferred into seismic waves, also known as an earthquake (Alvarez, et al., 2014). Conclusion The largest earthquake ever recorded on the rector scale is the Great Chilean Earthquake. At some time in the past as some point there could have been a larger earthquake, however the technology did not exist, it would not have been recorded. With the Great Chilean Earthquake there devastating effects of landscape, loss of building and home and the disastrous amount of people that lost their life. Had the technology been available in the 1960’s, the death toll would have been significant reduced and potentially they could have predicted this disastrous
The earthquake caused widespread damage to the life and ecology. The quake also caused significant damage to the city’s infrastructure, which already had been weakened by the earlier quakes in previous months. 185 people were killed in the disaster and more were severely injured. This event was again followed by large aftershocks on 11 June 2011 and 23 December 2011 causing considerable additional

Earthquakes Earths crust is a hard-outer cover that is surrounding around the whole earth; it is made up of many, many pieces that are called Tectonic plates. These tectonic plates are constantly moving however they move quite slowly, the move up to 5 centre meters per year.
Tsunamis (Seismic sea waves) are huge ocean waves created by undersea disturbances. Zosia Bulhak Japan is a breathtaking place, but also a country with a very old and respected culture. It would seem like the perfect place to live, almost like a heaven on earth, if it weren’t for the terrible natural disasters called tsunamis. Tsunami comes from Japanese and it means a harbour wave. According to National Geographic, these waves can reach heights up to 35 meters, and are mostly the aftereffects of earthquakes.
I think the three main reasons are: Natural disasters, foreign invasions, and the city’s military problems. One of the biggest reasons to explain this disaster is the never ending natural disasters. In three-hundred-thirty-six CE, the city of Rome was shook by a deadly and devastating Earthquake. (Doc F). The Earthquake shook the Mediterranean sea along with the land, causing an additional flood.
