Why is it dangerous living in Italy?
Why live in Indonesia
The tectonic plates of Indonesia
The tectonic plates of Indonesia. Most of these volcanoes are the result of subduction of the Australian plate beneath the Eurasian plate. The more denser plate Will move under the more thicker plate which make them break and move along the cracks. Doing this will cause the subducted plate to move in jerks which will cause it to make friction between the two plates and cause heat which heat from the mantle cause the plate to melt, which then magma is produced and rises through the cracks in the crust to form a volcano.
The dangers of living in Indonesia
The dangers of living in Indonesia. Living here would put you at risk of volcanoes, radiation from volcanoes, mudslides, and earthquakes. Also you can be injured by mud flows to.

Why live in Chile?
Chile is a beautiful place with many breath-taking tourist attractions. The most famous by far is Easter Island, Easter Island is an isolated island with 877 stone statues handcrafted by the island’s original owners, the Rapanui. Although Easter Island is an amazing place, there are many more reasons Chile is so great. Another reason is the vibrant cities, the most popular being Santiago. Santiago is not only a city in Chile, it has been the capital since colonial times. It also has nearly perfect weather, it is warm and usually has a nice breeze to keep you cool. Taking all of this into consideration, why wouldn’t you want to live in Chile?
Although Chile is an amazing place to live, there is a higher chance for big earthquakes there. The reason for this is because it is one of the few places in the world that sits on 3 tectonic plates. The plates that Chile sits on are the antarctic plate, the nazca plate, and the south african plate; and they are all moving! There have been a few major landforms in Chile because of tectonic activity. One of them being the Andes mountains, the Andes were formed by one plate sliding under another and ‘popping up’ the plate on top. Central Valley is also a major landform, it was formed when the mountains were, as the mountains rose the Earth’s crust was bent downward forming the valley.
Why is it dangerous?
Chile is a great place to live, but can also be dangerous. With over 261,000 deaths from major events total, Chile is not a place one would want to be during an earthquake or volcano. There is also a great amount of property damage, like 29.7 billion dollars worth!There is also many earthquakes and volcanos in the Chile area, there are 105 volcanos, and about 1960 earthquakes every year.The most recent earthquake in Chile was probably just a couple hours ago!
