PREFACE Thank God , because of His grace I can finish the task that called the Earthquakes . T his task is proposed in order to fulfill the task of English subjects. I would like to thank all those who helped to make this task can be completed on time. This task is still far from perfect, therefore, criticism and constructive suggestions so I hope to perfect this assignment. Hopefully this task provides information for friends and useful insights for the development and enhancement of knowledge for us all.
PRELIMINARY Earthquakes are natural disasters that frequently occur in the hemisphere. Earthquakes occur due to a shift in the Earth's plates or volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur when the pressure that occurs because the movement was too large to be arrested .
An earthquake is caused by tectonic activity, the tectonic plates shift suddenly has the power of the very small to very large. This earthquake generated a lot of damage or natural disasters on earth, a strong earthquake vibrations can spread into other parts of the earth.
2. Volcanic earthquakes (Volcano); This earthquake occurred as a result of magma activity, which usually occurs before the volcano erupted. If activeness higher it will cause an explosion that would also lead to the occurrence of earthquakes. The earthquake was only felt around the volcano.
THE CAUSES OF EARTHQUAKES Most earthquakes result from the release of energy generated by the pressure made by the moving plates. The longer the pressure was becoming enlarged and eventually reach the state where the pressure can not be detained again by the edge of the slab. That's when an earthquake will occur. Earthquakes usually happen at plate boundaries such slabs
October 26, 2010, earthquakes in the Mentawai scale 2.7 on the Richter Scale, the death toll to 9 November was found to reach 156 people. The earthquake is then also generate a tsunami.
June 16, 2010, earthquake of 7.1 on the Richter Scale Biak, Papua.
7 April 2010, An earthquake with a strength of 2.7 Richter scale in northern Sumatra more centered 60km from Sinabang, Aceh. Not cause a tsunami, causing physical damage in some areas, there has been no information of casualties.
30 September 2009, West Sumatra earthquake was tectonic earthquakes originating from the shift Semangko fault, this earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale (BMG Indonesia) or 7.9 on the Richter scale (BMG U.S.) shake-Pariaman Padang, Indonesia. Caused at least 1,100 people were killed and thousands trapped in rubble.
EARTHQUAKE • Building collapse • Fire • The fall fatalities • Surface soil into glue and roads to be broken • Landslides caused by shocks • Flooding caused damage to the embankment • The earthquake on the seabed that causes a tsunami
WHEN INSIDE THE HOUSE • Do not panic and do not run outside, take shelter under a table or bed • If n o, prote ct the head with a pillow or o ther obje ct. • St ay away from bookcases, war drobes a nd window glass. • Berwae of the ceiling might collapse, objects hanging on the wall and so on .
WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING A VEHICLE • Immediately stop in the open. • Do not stop on the bridge or under an overpass / bridge crossings.
WHEN YOU ARE OUTDOORS • Stay away from high buildings, walls, sheer cliffs, power centers and power lines, billboards, tall trees, etc.. • Try to reach an open area. • Stay away from shelves and glass windows.
WHEN THEY ARE ON THE TRAIN • Hold firmly to the mast so that you will not fall if the train is stopped abruptly • Be calm following the official explanation of the train • One understa nds the information officer or stat ion wagon would cause panic
• It is predictable that many people will be injured during a major earthquake. Because of health workers from hospitals will have difficulty coming to the scene then be prepared to give first aid to the people around you. Evacuation: • Places of refuge are usually set by local governments. Displacement needs to be done if the earthquake caused widespread fires. In principle, the evacuations carried out on foot under the escort of police officers or government agencies. * * * Bring the items to taste.

You can get correct information from the authorities, police, or officer of PMK. Do not act because the information people are not clear.
THANK YOU FOR READING AND LISTENING TO MY PAPER. IF THERE ARE FLAWS AND ERRORS BEG TO BE UNDERSTOOD. BECAUSE I AM ONLY HUMAN THAT IS FAR FROM PERFECTION.HOPEFULLY THIS PAPER CAN BE BENEFICIAL TO ALL.
