Tsunamis happen when the plates on the crust of the earth move, therefore moving the entire plate so that the water rises and is pushed forward, therefore causing a tsunami (Drohan, 2009, p.21). These tectonic plates are everywhere, under everything from the biggest mountain to the smallest hill. Though it is infrequent, volcanoes have been known to cause tsunamis. It happens when to volcano begins to erupt, but instead of coming out from the top of the volcano a lateral blast shoots out from the side. Next, a quickly moving avalanche of lava pours into the water near it causing the wave to travel to distant coastlines (Springer, 2005).
The Lost City of Atlantis is often believed and often doubted. Around the time of 1,500 B.C. Poseidon led a large civilization that “sank into the Atlantic” after a major earthquake or also said to be a volcanic eruption. The City was sank by waves in one entire day and one entire night. Theme parks have been made to resemble the legend of the lost city.
Significant Earthquake Throughout its lifespan, earth has experienced some very extreme catastrophes. These disastrous events have the capability to totally alter the landscape as well as change the lives of the inhabitants of the area that they occur in. During this period of time some catastrophes were foreseeable such volcanos erupting, severe thunder and snow storms, however, catastrophes such as earthquake, tsunami and tornado were not predicable. Back in 1960, the technology that we have today was not available; therefore there was no warning or indication when a possible earthquake might occur. Today, technology has evolved beyond our wildest dreams, as technology now offers the ability to some nature disaster and warn those living
In 1980, Mt. St. Helens in Washington state erupted, leaving ash everywhere; demolishing and exterminating all plant life. These Geo processes can cause land to rise or sink. One epitome of these are the islands of Hawaii. Hawaii was molded from underwater volcanoes.

Scar, Simba’s evil and jealous uncle, kills Mufasa by letting Mufasa fall off of a cliff during a stampede. Simba runs away, thinking it was his fault for his father’s death.
It was found out that the disposal wells pumped with used fracking chemical water are creating these man-made earthquakes. “If you pump water in a fault, the fault can slip, causing an earthquake.” https://stateimpact.npr.org/texas/tag/earthquake/ These earthquakes, no matter how big or small are bothersome to a person 's
The ship called the Odyssey arrived at Sicily. Odysseus tricked my son into drinking strong wine and therefore drunkening him. Once he was drunk, Odysseus grabbed a wooden steak and stabbed him in the eye. Since Odysseus stabbed my son in his only eye, I created dangerous obstacles on their way back and finally I sunk the Odyssey with massive waves. Once there was a great war between the mortals, this war was called the Trojan war.
Jules Verne includes many themes in his book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. One major theme is masculinity, or qualities traditionally associated among men. “The captain fell on the earth, upset by the enormous mass which leaned upon him. The shark 's jaws opened wide, like a pair of factory shears, and it would have been all over with the captain; but, quick as a thought, harpoon in hand, Ned Land rushed toward the shark and struck it with its sharp point” (Verne 156). Masculinity is shown here because bravery is a trait commonly associated with men, and Ned Land had to be brave to help save Captain Nemo from the wide open jaws of the carnivorous shark.
Being viewed as a very ill-tempered and violent old man, who could quickly go from calm to steaming with rage, it made sense that Poseidon would be the cause of these many disasters. Another way to look at this is that because the sea was so dangerous and unpredictable the Greeks developed their view of Poseidon to be that of an ill-tempered old man who was so quick to anger. Most commonly, he was known to cause terrible storms and massive tidal waves to plague the Greeks when he was displeased with them ("Poseidon," Ancient). Another devastating disaster, believed to be caused by Poseidon, was earthquakes, giving him the additional title “Earth-Shaker”, but still this was not the limit of his destructive power. With his trident, he could easily send an island back beneath the waves, along with all of its inhabitants; or destroy whole cities with violent floods ("Poseidon," UXL).
This angers Grendel so he rampages in Herot Hall killing Danes. Later Beowulf comes to kill Grendel. Beowulf returns to Geatland. Fifty years later he fights a dragon. Sacrifice can benefit the greater good.” For example, Beowulf is willing to give his life for Hrothgar’s kingdom.
