Most Dangerous Places To Live

By: Laura, Bailey, Nicole, Aaron

Introduction

Across the world, multiple earthquakes and volcanoes happen everyday. Some of them are very dangerous causing many deaths, while others aren’t felt by humans. Volcanoes and earthquakes all happen along boundaries that tectonic plates make up. The plates grind past each other causing high magnitudes and volcanic activity. Japan, San Francisco, Solomon Islands, and the British Virgin Islands are the most dangerous places in the world today.

Conclusion

All these places listed above are places where high magnitude earthquakes might occur along with dangerous, lava spitting volcanoes. The most dangerous places to live in the world by means of tectonic plate activity are Solomon Islands, British Virgin Islands, San Francisco, and Japan. All of the places have been destroyed by either an earthquake or volcano eruption. These places have been destroyed and built back up again, but built stronger because they have learned from the past, and they plan for the dangerous future ahead.
