Tsunami Earthquake storm
Feel Do you FEEL the ground shaking severely? Strong
earthquakes may cause tsunamis. RUN to high ground if you feel
strong shaking. See Do you SEE the water withdraw an unusual
distance? As a tsunami approaches land, the ocean may pull back a
long way from the shore, exposing the ocean floor, reefs and fish.
RUN to high ground if the sea withdraws. Hear Do you HEAR a strange
roar? A roaring sound from the ocean is sometimes heard before a
tsunami arrives. RUN to high ground if you hear a strange
Tsunamis do not necessarily make their final approach to land
as a series of giant breaking waves. They may be more like a very
rapidly rising tide. This may be accompanied by much underwater
turbulence, sucking people under and tossing heavy objects around.
Entire beaches have been stripped away by tsunamis. The 2004 Indian
Ocean tsunami could rank as the most devastating on record. More
than 200,000 people lost their lives, many of them washed out to
sea. The Pacific is by far the most active tsunami zone, according
to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
But tsunamis have been generated in other bodies of water,
including the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas, and the Indian and
Atlantic Oceans. North Atlantic tsunamis included the tsunami
associated with the 1775 Lisbon earthquake that killed as many as
60,000 people in Portugal, Spain, and North Africa. This quake
caused a tsunami as high as 23 feet (7 meters) in the
How to Know Naturally when Earthquake Will Strike No one can
predict when an earthquake will strike, but if you stay in an
earthquake prone area, you have to depend on these age old
indications of the animals and try to go to a safer places the
moment you notice any behavior aberration among the animals.
Powerfull storm Powerful storms such as thunderstorms,
hurricanes, and tornadoes are generated when warm, light air rises
quickly into higher, colder levels in an unstable updraft that can
reach over 100 miles per hour. Each type of storm forms under
specific conditions; hurricanes occur over moisture-rich oceans and
coastlines, for example. They draw their energy from warm ocean
waters. Understanding the conditions that give rise to powerful
storms is the key to preparing for their devastating effects.
Thunder and lightning At any given moment, there are an estimated
2,000 thunderstorms in progress over Earth's surface. These storms
can vary from relatively mild rainstorms to very damaging storms
that feature hail and high wind. Thunderstorms form when warm air
rises from Earth's surface and moves upwards quickly into the
colder levels of the atmosphere. If conditions are right, tornadoes
can form from this rapid updraft. Normally, however, the result is
rain, wind, lightning, and thunder.
