Avalanches can cause flash floods, or economic impact. They can also cause damage to property because of the force coming down the mountain side is strong enough to destroy a house. They have also been known to cause a lot of casualties, because they can get caught in the avalanche and become buried, to get them unburied would take someone
One moment the sky was growing a little grey, and the next thing you know you were surrounded by snow and stunning winds. The main reason this blizzard was unmistakingly deadly was because of its powerful winds, which would blow snow and ice into people’s faces, and the chilling temperatures of 40 below. People caught outside would have their nostrils and eyelids sealed shut by ice, their skin would tear open if they rubbed the ice off too much, and eventually their limbs would become frozen and lifeless. To sum it up, the people caught outside were at the mercy of the storm’s relentless force. David Laskin’s The Children’s Blizzard shows many acts of selflessness.
Snowblowers are typically machines which drive away snow in two stages whereas snowthrowers do it in only one stage. Single stage snowthrowers use a convenient technique to force the snow along the centerline of the machine where the discharge chute is located and then force them out through that. Usually curved paddles are placed along as impellers in the snowthrowers. Whereas snowblowers are high end diesel machines which churn the snow with the heavy tire chains or tracks and carry them away or force them out, with a huge
It's circumstances like these where sometimes the vehicle you own can be a matter of life, death, or getting injured. In the winter when the roads are filled with black ice or snow, you certainly wouldn't want to be driving around in a small car. If you have the option you might want to be in larger car with four-wheel drive like an SUV. I know from experience that driving home in a snow storm can be absolutely frightening and it's a time where I am grateful to be in a Yukon rather than a Honda Fit. People living in mountainous areas also have to be considered.
Although the end of the journey was most desirable, the in between presented a lot of hardships. One of them being that when off train, weather conditions presented many obstacles. Fires could break in the prairies and storms rolled throughout the west. Along with the weather, supplies could run low along the journey. Some other problems could have consisted of conflicts with Natives or possibly fights
One thing that greatly affects change is, of course, seasons. In the winter, everything seems dead. Haskell writes: “Death juts from the snow: fallen, partially decayed maple branches and the frayed stubs of leafcup stems protrude, each stem ringed by a circle of sublimated snow that reveals the dark litter below.” On the contrary, in the spring everything is coming back to life: “My walk to the mandala has become fraught. Every footstep threatens to crush half a dozen wildflowers, and so I step slowly, trying to pick a way that does not leave a trail of crushed beauty.” Haskell is aware that beauty is fragile and does not want to take it away, however, it will naturally fade on its own no matter what. Haskell witnessed this happening and he describes it as so: “Springtimes perfect leaves have turned ragged.
Such as, an another vehicle or a foreign object on the road or it could be due to an environmental condition. Such as, sliding off the road after hitting a patch of ice or driving off the edge of the pavement in thick fog or smoke, or veering around an animal that has darted out into the roadway. There are many reasons why run-off-the-road crashes occur, maybe a vehicle has a tire blowout, or some other type of malfunction, but the most important lethal type, unfortunately, also the most preventable fixed are the drift-off-the-road crashes. These deadly departures can normally be attributed. including fatigue in use by alcohol and drugs, drowsiness inattentiveness or just plain
The problem I chose to write about is the build up of ice jams on rivers. In winter time, large amounts of ice may gather up, stopping the river from flowing. The floating ice often builds up near river bends, mouths of tributaries, and points where river slope decreases.This is a problem often faced in Ottawa, and is extremely dangerous, as it may cause floods when the melted ice is added to the river and harm the people living near it. To solve this problem, the ice is blown up with the use of dynamite. The ice jams are exploded in different ways in different places.
I have to follow the speed limit of each road, I have to signal before changing lanes, my vehicle must be in good condition in order to safely drive and I must obey all road signs as they are set in place to ensure the safety of everybody. There are many other rules regarding safe driving such as wearing a seatbelt, driving sober, no distracted driving, having only the set amount of people in your vehicle as it permits, not driving recklessly and many more. The purpose of all these laws are to make sure that no accidents are caused, no one is hurt/injured/killed and that everyone arrives at their destination safely. These are only a couple examples of the law regarding safe driving. The law is also present in other aspects of my daily life.

Landslides have historically have had an impact on the town. The harsh winter climate that Juneau faces causes permafrost. Permafrost when thawed can cause serious landslides. Between permafrost and human activity landslides in Juneau occur frequently. In the city of Juneau landslides are common but are often very minor.
According to the three documents, Alaska made it difficult to explore because of it’s weather, having to travel by foot, and the lot of ice Alaska has there. First off, the Alaskan weather changes all the time. If you wanted to explore Alaska, you would have to pack lots of warm clothes. Temperatures can vary depending on where you are at and what time of season/day it is. During the Klondike Gold Rush, many people had tried
