Throughout history, the infection dilemma has gone from being spread through sneezing and coughing, and now it may be able to spread through an attack. An attack of bioterrorism would be a disaster on any part of the world, which was seen by the attacks in September 2001.

Tsunami Tsunami Why are tsunamis so dangerous to humans? To begin this essay, I think first of all describe what a tsunami is and then be able to manage my question: Why are tsunamis so dangerous to humans A tsunami is a huge wave that can be up to 30 meters high. Tsunamis can be formed by landslides or volcanic eruptions underwater or when a meteorite crashes into the sea. Tsunamis occur, however, usually associated with earthquakes on the seabed due to movements in the earth 's crust or upper mantle. When this is done is created a vertical offset, the seabed drops or raised along a fault and this in turn creates a movement of large masses of water forming two tsunami waves that move in different directions.
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
Natural disasters are a nature’s events and are uncontrollable, although predictable. They include typhoons , rainy season flooding, tornadoes and tsunami. An article in the Guardian states that a study has revealed natural disaster has displaces three times as many people as war in 2013.

During the time of Jeremiah, he got actively occupied in the political and spiritual activities of a critical age in the history of olden Near East regions. His religious guidance helped his associates to endure disasters including the fall of Jerusalem and its conquest by the Babylon Army in 586 BC. Many of the Judaeans had to exile to Babylonia. It was truly a transition age in all aspects. The fall and disintegration of the great Assyrian empire, and its culture which was prominent for more than two centuries also added to this transition.
The earthquake happened because of the movement from the San Andreas Fault (u-s-history.com) .This little movement from the tectonic caused big things such as earthquake, but what exactly is San Andreas Fault? San Andreas fault is major fracture of the Earth’s crust in extreme western north America (Brittanica). San Andreas fault have caused so many earthquakes in U.S.A, causing many destruction, and causing lost of lifes. Now, What made Northridge Earthquake so destructive? While the Northridge earthquake was happening Californian people couldn’t predict it (u-s-history.com).
Statement of the Problem Among the events that have had a drastic shaping on human events throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are natural disasters. Often times, a natural disaster will leave residents of affected areas in a state of awe as they seek to understand what exactly happened. One such example is Hurricane Hugo. Hurricane Hugo was a storm that dealt damage to the entire coast of South Carolina in September, 1989. However, one problem that historians have run into with the discussion on Hurricane Hugo is that very few works have been written on the overlying impact Hurricane Hugo had on the entire Low Country of South Carolina.
Notes: Tropical Cyclone Tracey caused an impact in economy of about 950 million dollars in. Also, Tropical Cyclone Tracey lead to a loss in population which dropped the people in jobs decimating local businesses. Tropical Cyclone Tracey destroyed over 9000 homes. Most of the buildings were not built to cyclone regulations despite they were in the cyclone belt. This would have cost them lots of money to rebuild everything again and would have taken a long time to regrow the environment to how it was before.
PBS Frontline Documentary, ‘The Storm In spite of decades of planning for disasters, federal, state, and local authorities still failed to cope with Hurricane Katrina. PBS Frontline’s documentary The Storm was produced following the destruction of human life and property by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and its environs. Co-produced by Martin Smith, the 60-minute documentary essentially conducts an investigation into the decisions and actions that resulted in poor and uncoordinated federal and state response to the catastrophe. Unlike common films that people like watching, The Storm is a remarkable film that helps people understand the role of state and federal authorities in crises. The documentary by Frontline reveals the insubstantial excuses and reasons that public agencies such as FEMA and their officers give after failing to do what the public expects of them.
