  • Series--sometimes people think it’s over after first hit, then another wave comes
  • Earthquakes are the most common causes
  • Heavy oceanic plate plunges under lighter continental plate. Edges get stuck, snap free, releasing energy in the form of an earthquake. Door story.
  • Area in red is ring of fire
  • Large impact on the environment -clean up, polluted water, debris economy - 7billion donated from other countries and billions more spent repairing whole cities, tourist and fishing industry hurt humanitarian- unsanitary conditions can cause epidemics, disease, hunger. Tsunamis happening this week in Samoa--over 100 people have been killed
