A hurricane is a storm with a violent wind, in particular a tropical cyclone in the Caribbean. One of the biggest hurricanes that hit the world was Hurricane Ten. Hurricane Ten is the oldest Category 5 hurricane in the official North Atlantic hurricane database, which dates back as far as 1851. The hurricane first struck the Western tip of Cuba with winds of 165 miles per hour causing roughly 90 deaths. Hurricane Ten later struck the United States in South Florida causing minimal damage. The power of the hurricane depends on how rapidly water can evaporate from the ocean. Evaporation transfers heat from the ocean into the atmosphere. Since Global warming is happening and is a very important subject to this day there is a lot of evaporation happening when there is a hurricane. Climate change will increase the amount of devastation due to hurricanes as sea levels rise because of global warming
Strong earthquakes that hit people’s homes not only destroy their homes, but leave a grand amount of people homeless. As a result, earthquakes affect the Earth, people, and property on it. All of the houses, buildings, and roadways destroyed make repair bills go up to more than $6 billion and people hold the devastation of some of their family members and friends who get injured in earthquakes. Animals that once lived together spread to other continents which they aren’t used to when the Earth’s continents slide and
The earth is like a jigsaw puzzle, it moves in someway or another all of the time. The tectonic plates that form the surface of the Earth are often sliding against each other, which triggers earthquakes. The 1960 Chile Earthquake was the largest earthquake ever recorded which had a tremendous impact not only on the immediate area and the people living there, but also on the rest of the world. The 1960 was the largest earthquake ever recorded.
A tsunami is a series of great sea waves caused by an underwater earthquake, landslide or volcanic eruption. A tsunami is a series of many waves known as wave trains. A tsunami can also be generated by a giant meteor. Most tsunamis are known to be formed by underwater earthquakes.
Reports show that homes are quickly being decimated, and firefighters and individuals have been killed because of this rapidly spreading fire. We may question what's causing these widespread, eye-opening wildfires. Well heat waves, wind, and the drought can be the blame for this. We are experiencing a really low amount of rainfall and this causes a drought around the world.
Hurricanes can be powerful storms that form over ocean water in the tropics. Hurricane Sandy occurred in 2012 along the east coast along the United States. Hurricanes cause wide havoc to many coastal cities and inland cities and are very dangerous.
Close your eyes and imagine what it would be like to live in a house surrounded by enormous vivacious trees. The view from every angle of your home would never be a disappointment. Think about how beautiful and breathtaking it would be to watch all of the leaves change colors during autumn. Right now, you are most likely inclined to believe that nothing could possibly be awful about living here, but you are wrong, very wrong.
Since most of the buildings was made out of wood the fire burned it easily and spreaded quick.(”Legend has it that a cow kicked over a lantern in a barn and started the fire, but other theories is that humans or even a meteor might have been responsible for the event that left an area in flames’’).(McHugh, Janet. ebscohost)
5:12 a.m., Wednesday, April 18, 1906, one of the most devastating earthquakes in the history of the United States hit the heavily populated city of San Francisco, California. This violent earthquake caused extensive and expensive damage and deaths across the city and even resulted in a fire that raged throughout the city for four full days after the earthquake. While the exact casualty tall is uncertain modern scientist estimate the death toll to be around 3,000 people with rough 25,000 left without a home(_____________3________________). However, all was not lost, from the rubble and ashes of San Francisco scientists, seismologist, and geologists alike were able to make improvements upon earthquake technology and better define what causes
Although storms like Hurricane Katrina occur once in every one hundred years, being prepared and storing water, food, medicines, and other supplies keep families ready for any disaster. Natural disasters can leave communities without power for days and even for weeks. Being prepared in the event of severe weather and disasters like Hurricane Katrina, can reduce fear and anxiety that accompanies disasters. A crucial element of self-sufficient living is survival. Our government does not have all the resources to be totally prepared to take care of the vast numbers of people in a disaster. Anyone facing a natural disaster, know that being prepared can be the difference between life and death when it comes to haveing water. Subsequently,
In 2015 in the middle of summer there was a conflagration. The conflagration was in a small town of M.T Vernon,Oregon and it burned for days and days. Firefighters tell me that it started because of the conflagration in California it started from the small embers that traveled and landed in a pile of hay,and spread to the dry grass. Sources tell me that it was the biggest conflagration yet. Many homes and crops destroyed.
Presidential Disasters Intelligence, honesty, and character are all qualities Americans look for in a president. Citizens want someone with power; someone who will make the nation better. These are things citizens have hoped for as early as the 1700s, when the nation elected the first president. Since then, citizens have placed many expectations on the president. When trouble comes or a disaster hits the nation, we as citizens typically rely on the president to provide aid and to support us during those times.
Hurricane Katrina: the Affects of National Guidance SFC Guillermo Mora U.S. Army Noncommissioned Officer Academy Master Leader Course Class# 003-18 MSG Brandy Phillip Introduction One of the deadliest hurricanes hit the city of New Orleans, Louisiana on August 29, 2005. Hurricane Katrina did a lot of damage, but its aftermath was catastrophic. Levee breaches led to eighty percent of the city to be flooded causing more than 2,000 deaths and over 100 billion dollars in damages (History.com staff, 2009). The flooding also stranded 20,000 residents in the Louisiana Superdome and thousands more on rooftops for days.
Superstorm Sandy Superstorm Sandy devastated almost all of the eastern seaboard and parts of Cuba. The hurricane started as a normal tropical storm over the warm waters near the equator (Pacific and Atlantic oceans). Then began to spin counterclockwise and form into a hurricane. The hurricane was given a category one rating on October 23, 2012.Even though the hurricane did not touch the Dominican Republic it still dumped twenty inches of rain in Hispaniola. Over fifty people died from flooding and mudslides.
Earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little. Most earthquakes occur along the edge of the oceanic and continental plates. Due to stress they shift and cause the earthquake.
