(History.com staff) “2.5m people fled the areas that had been affected by the dust bowl”. Because of all the debris, it was hard to even breathe in that area. “Dust clouds rose as high as 10,000, making it impossible for people to live there”. The dust clouds not only were super big, but took a long time to go by too. “Drought struck from 1934 until 1937 there was a drought, so there was no water for the families”.
An estimated 1,833 people died in the hurricane and the flooding that followed in late August 2005, and millions of others were left homeless along the Gulf Coast and in New Orleans (Zimmerman). Hurricane Katrina in the end had done about $100 billion dollars in damage. The government was not prepared for the impact of the hurricane. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) took days to establish operations in New Orleans, and even then did not seem
Darwin was attacked over an eighteen month period, when the Japanese starting attacking Darwin the citizens started to panic, on the 16th of December 1942, evacuation of non-essential civilian woman and children from Darwin ordered. 18th February more than two thousand people evacuated, a normal civilian population was around five thousand, most had either died or they were men fighting during the war. The evacuees and community came together to rebuild Darwin after the war; remnants of world war two are still visible at many locations across Darwin. The cities that were effected by the attack in Australia where Townsville, Queensland, Millingimbi, Northern Territory, Gulf, Katherine, Wyndham, derby and Port headland. Asian, European and Indigenous people worked alongside the allied service
After the disaster most people’s homes were destroyed and there were almost 100 people who evacuated to evacuation centers. (DocC) There was also a total of 22,816 families that had evacuated to nearby evacuation centers. (DocD) “Some of our close relatives like Uncle Carlto and Aunt Ronie have evacuated to safer grounds like Tagbilaran city.” (DocB) Most people when something like that happens evacuate to evacuation centers, but if the storm or whatever is happening is major then they would evacuate to other cities and wait for it to be over. If it is an earthquake they would not have a good chance at evacuating because the rods and sidewalk would be falling
One of the reason so many more will die is because there is no hospitals left in the city capable of caring for the now injured and sick In Nagasaki the effects were bad but not nearly as bad as Hiroshima. But were still devastating. After the bombed dropped more than 40% of the city was destroyed. Schools, homes, hospitals, churches had simply disappeared off the face of the earth. Survivors of the day were quoted on the horrible experience one said, “It was just a normal day in the city I have spent my whole life, and out of the blue my life changed for ever.”In Nagasaki 40000 people died on the first day after the bobbed was dropped and an expected 30000 are expected to die from their exposure to radiation over the next
As conditions became favorable, it started barrelling toward the Gulf Coast. It made landfall at Buras-Triumph, Louisiana as a category 3 hurricane. The winds of Katrina were 200 kilometers per hour and its storm surge reached 8 meters above sea level. This damaging storm killed 2,000 people and caused 108 billion dollars in damage. After Katrina, many conclusions regarding hurricane intensity were evaluated.
Every penny that is made, taxpayers lose money. Even though the penny might not seem worth much but per taxpayer it adds up to sixty million dollars a year(Sommer). To produce a penny it will cost a lot of money and why should we wanna waste money on something that is not worth for what it is. Other than the pennies costing to much, other countries have released the penny from their countries. Many countries have stopped having the pennies without any major disasters.
When the Dust Bowl hit people automatically panicked. It was a time of multiple dust storms which created a big impact on agriculture. It lasted about a decade. Little did people know it was partly man made. The Dust Bowl was created by severe drought and many years of farmers not rotating their crops (Teisch).
Hurricane Katrina: The Devastation of a Nation August 29th 2005, the day Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans caused mass destruction and claimed the lives of many. The day the hurricane touched down it scored in at a category 3 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale which puts it in the “major” category meaning “devastating” damage will occur. I don’t think anybody realized the mass amount of damage Katrina would really cause, it took lives, homes, land and so much more. Katrina originated in the Bahamas on August 23th and after it struck there it started making its way for the US. The day before the hurricane struck many people had already evacuated their cities but Mr. Nagin the mayor of New Orleans said he would not put out a mandatory
Since the major shock till 7th June 2015, there were >300 aftershocks of magnitude >4, among them 6 are > 6 magnitudes (the biggest aftershock 6.8 magnitudes with an epicenter near Mt. Everest) This devastating earthquake damages infrastructures including historical sites, residential houses, governmental buildings, roads, schools, and destruction is higher in poorer rural areas than towns, mainly due to the poor quality housing. Almost one-third of the populations of Nepal have been impacted by this earthquake, and nearly nine thousand casualties (male-3899; female-4801) and twenty-two thousand were injured. This result distinguishably highlights that females were more affected than male. The reason for this is differentiation of gender-based job plays a vital role in disaster and related risk and vulnerability.
