The Big Question

If there was one type of natural disaster you never want to go through which one would it be and why?


GO to this link to see your task Natural Disasters:

We are studying and gathering information about natural disasters. Your task in this hunt for knowledge is to answer some key questions on natural disasters. The Web offers interesting facts and opinions that may not be available anywhere else, but to find the truth you may have to read between the lines. Remember this activity is about thinking and learning, not copying and pasting.
Questions
  1. How are Tsunamis and earthquakes linked?
  2. List the things that happen when volcanoes erupt that cause damage to the land. How far away from an erupting volcano do you need to be to be safe?
  3. What does the richter scale do? Describe what might happen to Wedderburn and the surrounding district if a 6.5 earthquake occurred in the centre of town.
