  • 2. NATURAL DISASTERS
  • 3. WHICH EARTQUAKES CAME An earthquake in San Francisco An earthquake in Japan An earthquake in China An earthquake in New Zealand
  • 4. INTERESTING FACTS 1. Earthquakes kills approximately 8,000 people each year and have caused an estimated 13 million deaths in the past 4,000 years. 2. The moment magnitude scale (MMS) replaced the 1930s-era Richter scale in the 1970s as the method of measuring the size of earthquakes in terms of energy released. 3. In Japan mythology, a giant catfish called Namazu is responsible for earthquakes. 4. The Indian Ocean earthquake in 2004 generated enough energy to power all the homes and businesses in the United States for three days.
  • 5. MORE FACTS MORE FACTS 1. An average earthquake lasts around a minute. 2. Aftershocks occur because the displaced fault line and crust are adjusting to the effects of the main earthquake. Larger earthquakes can have aftershocks that last for years. 3. Shock waves produced by Ray leigh waves or waves that roll through the Earth’s surface—in contrast to side-to-side waves or Love waves—can travel far enough upward to cause a disturbance in the ionosphere. The ionosphere is the layer of Earth’s atmosphere about 50-300 miles (80-480 km) above Earth’s surface.
  • 6. CATFISH NAMAZU In Japan mythology ,Catfish Namazu is responsible for earthquakes.
  • 7. TECHNOLOGY WHICH CAN HELP US IN FIGHTING WITH EARTHQUAKES START THE COUNTDOWN 1. If you're not ready to live in a soccer ball- shaped house that's resistant to earthquakes and floats on water, you may have some other options on your hands.
  • 8. Shock Absorbers 1. Shock absorbers aren't just for cars. If you were going on Coney Island's Parachute Jump back in the day, you would have been glad to see the shock absorbers resting at the bottom, ready to soften your landing.
  • 9. How can we be prepared for earthquake?  Before an earthquake occurs  Fasten shelves securely to walls, and place heavy objects on lower shelves.  Store breakable items in low, closed cabinets.  Hang items such as pictures and mirrors away from beds and anywhere people sit.  Brace hanging light fixtures.
  • 10.  Repair known defective electrical wiring and gas connections.  Repair any large existing cracks in walls or foundations.  Store poisons such as pesticides and herbicides, as well as flammable liquids, on bottoms shelves of latched cabinets.  Strap your water heater to studs in the wall and bolt it to the floor.  Identify safe places in each room (under sturdy furniture, against inside walls, away from glass
  • 11.  Locate safe places outdoors (away from buildings, trees, electrical lines, and bridges).  Teach family members how to turn off gas, electricity, and water.  Teach children how to dial 911 in an emergency.  Have disaster supplies on hand (flashlight and extra batteries, battery operated radio, fist aid kit with manual, emergency food and drinking water, non electric can opener, cash, sturdy shoes).  Develop an emergency communications plan in case family members are separated.
  • 12.  During an earthquake (indoors)...  Take cover beneath a sturdy piece of furniture or against an indoor wall away from glass that might break.  Stay inside! The most dangerous thing you can do during an earthquake is to try to leave.  During an earthquake (outdoors)...  Move into the open, away from buildings, street lights, and overhead utility wires. Stay there until the shaking stops.
  • 13.  During an earthquake (in a moving vehicle)...  Try to find a clear area away from buildings, trees, overpasses, and overhead wires.  Stop quickly and stay in the vehicle.  Once the shaking has stopped, proceed with caution. Bridges and ramps may have been damaged during the shaking.
  • 14.  Dealing with pets...  The behavior of pets may change after an earthquake, and they may become aggressive or defensive.  Leash dogs or keep them in a fenced area.  Pets may not be allowed in emergency shelters, so prepare an emergency supply that includes a several day supply of dry pet food and a large water container
  • 15.  After the earthquake...  Be prepared for aftershocks. They may cause additional damage for hours to months after the main shock.  Help injured or trapped persons within the limits of your abilities.  Listen to a battery operated radio or television for emergency information.  Check on the elderly and disabled, or children who may need special help.  Stay out of damaged buildings!  Use the telephone only for emergency calls.
  • 16.  Clean up spilled materials.  Open cabinet and closet doors cautiously.  Inspect chimneys for damage, and be extremely careful when lighting fires in fireplaces. Chimney damage may lead to fires.  Check utilities for damage. If you smell gas, turn off the gas and do not use electrical devices (including telephones). Stay away from broken electrical wires, and turn off the main fuse box or circuit breaker. If water pipes are damaged, do not use the toilet and avoid tap water for drinking. Use your emergency supply, and melt ice cubes for additional water.
