A Natrual Disaster
Earthquakes can cause terrible disasters. Everyday, about 500,000 quakes could possibly happen (National Geographic). Earthquakes can happen anytime, and anywhere. It all starts from a plate of the Earth’s crust. The crust is like a puzzle with multiple pieces, and a plate is one piece. According to National Geographic, the estimation of the fastest plate shifting is about 6 inches per year. When a plate constantly messes with another plate, it causes an earthquake. In populated areas, they can cause the most damage by breaking structures, windows, and could even cause fire (National Geographic). Based on the facts given, earthquakes can cause terrible disasters.
