Tsunamis by Alain Romeo, 3.02

  1. 1. Tsunamis <ul><li>We will look at these points regarding tsunamis: </li></ul><ul><li>How tsunamis are formed. </li></ul><ul><li>2) The destruction caused. </li></ul><ul><li>3)The aftermath of the tsunami. </li></ul><ul><li>4) The effects on the economy. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Tsunamis or Tidal waves are caused by earthquakes at sea. Earthquakes happen when the tectonic plates that make up the Earth’s surface suddenly move against each other.
  3. 4. Tsunamis can cause unimaginable destruction and loss of innocent lives. We could take the tsunami of Japan for an example and the tsunami of Thailand in 2004,they caused a lot of destruction and death.
  4. 6. The aftermaths after the tsunamis are devastating because homes, shops, cars, buildings and power plants will get damaged or destroyed. And a very scary aftermath would be that a nuclear power plant would be damaged like the one in Japan called FUGUSHIMA
  5. 8. The Economic aftermaths are also devastating because without money you cannot rebuild any homes or buildings. And to remove broken houses, buildings, trees , you need to wait for the water to go down again because with the water still high you cannot remove any debris, so it would take a lot of time, and TIME IS MONEY.
  6. 9. Then you need to face the horrible fact of retriving dead bodies and to get people to saftey from the water and people that are stuck somewhere. <ul><li>THE END </li></ul>
