Dangerous Earthquakes and Volcanos

Top 4 dangerous Earthquakes and Volcanos.

INTRODUCTION

These places may look beautiful to you but way down deep in the earth there not.

The locations my group has chose is Chile, California, Alaska, and Indonesia.

We chose these locations because we thought they were the most dangerous locations in the world. We evaluated each place and used the facts we found to make educated guess from our chart about these beautiful and dangerous places.


Why Do People Live In California.

The Nice blue sea and it Sunny beaches is one reason people live in California. Californian people don’t just live there because of the sea and the beaches, they got have a place like Yosemite National Park. Other famous parks or places are Sequin Trees and Kings, Canyon National Park, and Redwood national parks. California has cool and historic cities like San Francisco and San Diego which are both fun and exciting place to visit. California is like paradise; with the Sunny Beaches and Oceans. The national parks are why so many people live in California.

California Tectonic Plates.

California isn't just a beautiful place with Sunny Beaches and Famous attractions, it has earthquakes and Volcanoes that have caused damage and deaths. These Destructive events and land forms are created by the tectonic plates by and in California. The plates that cause all of these disasters in California is the Pacific Plate and North American. These Plates cause Destructive earthquakes in California because the two Plate are always colliding. When the plates collide one of the plate move under the other and occasionally the plate catch on each other and lock up. When the Plates are lock up they might not be moving but energy is still there and building up. All that energy that is built up behind the plates cause the plates to free which cause earthquakes.

Evidence


Mount Sinabung has erupted 220 times this week. That is one volcano out of the any in Indonesia. In the past ten years there has been 50+ earthquakes. They have been ranging from 5.9 up to 9.3 magnitude, and there is a average deaths from each earthquake that is approximately 2,000 deaths. And there had been more than 26,000 people to leave their homes due to damage.

Why Do People Live In Chile

People come to live in Chile for many different reasons. Chile is a beautiful country with many different sights and sounds. Most of the people that live or move to the country are in the mining business. Mining is a big part of Chile and many peopled make their money from this business. Chile is famous for their mines and beautiful scenery. Thats why people mainly choose to move and live in Chile.


Chile's Tectonic Plates

Chile may be a beautiful place with lots of mining opportunities, but Chile also has other features like tectonic plates. Chile has three tectonic plates, that move every once in a while causing earthquakes. This is the main form of tectonic activity caused by plates moving and colliding. Underwater trenches are one of the types of land forms caused by the plates shifting. Another land form caused by tectonic plates moving are mid-ocean ridges.

Evidence

Chile's tectonic plates shifting can cause different land forms but it can also cause deadly earthquakes. Chile can be a peaceful beautiful country at times but deadly earthquakes have caused havoc on the country of years. Earthquakes have destroyed different parts of Chile recently with the most recent earthquake being June of 2013. The earthquake measured at 5.7 and shook buildings around Chile. Another recent and more deadly earthquake was in 2010 when a 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck Chile. This deadly earthquake killed 500+ and destroyed 220,000 homes. Chile may be a beautiful, excotic country, but it has proven to be deadly.

Why people live in Alaska

Alaska isn't just a good place to go hunting, it is also a very good place to go fishing. Alaska has a lot of tourist attractions. Some of the attractions are: The Alaskan Native Heritage Center, Portage Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park and Whale Spotting Boat Rides in the ocean. Alaska is a very cold, frigid place especially in the winter time because it is always dark. In the winter months it is always dark because the sun is in the lower hemisphere. A lot of people choose to live in Alaska for the scenery and to get away from the big cities. There are many animals in Alaska.

Alaska's Tectonic Plates

Alaska is the most tectonically active region in the United States. The plate that Alaska sits on is the North American Plate. The plate collided into each other making one side go downward until it gets stuck and then when it breaks off and then creates an earthquake. One of the two landforms created by Alaska’s tectonic plates is Mount Cleveland, which sits on the Fox Islands in Alaska. And another one is Pavolf, which has been spurting out lava slowly and pushing out ash.

Evidence

I believe Alaska is one of the most deadliest places to live. The tectonic plates are moving all the time. Out of all the years earthquakes and volcanoes have been happening there. There have been 298 people die from just earthquakes, which is a lot of people. This has caused Alaska 311 million dollars in damage. Alaska is a very dangerous place because you never know when an earthquake or volcano will happen near you.

Tectonic Plates

Indonesia sit on plates. the plates that indonesia happen to sit on are continental plates. continental plates. These plates will usually hit have a collision with each other forcing the smaller of the two plates to get pushed down will the top plates can get pushed upwards creating a volcano or the collision of the two plates will cause an earthquake.

Danger in Indonesia

Mount Sinabung has erupted 220 times this week. That is one volcano out of the any in Indonesia. In the past ten years there has been 50+ earthquakes. They have been ranging from 5.9 up to 9.3 magnitude, and there is a average deaths from each earthquake that is approximately 2,000 deaths.

Conclusion

Now you know a little about what places we think are one of the four most dangerous places in the world. Even though it is dangerous don’t let it keep you away from visiting because they are still very beautiful places to see. We evaluated these places by death count, and destruction to make our guess by using our chart. We thank you for your time to listen to our presentation.
