That would have meant that fifteen thousand more men would have been taken away from their families. That is one of the many pros for the dropping of the atom bombs. This is one of the cons for the atomic bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Because of the atom bombs being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki millions of people were killed, and the radiation led illness, birth defects, and death. When the atom bombs were dropped most of the cities in the radius of the blast were leveled.
If an eruption were to occur, a number of life-changing things would happen. Lava flow would burn everything in its path. Ash falls will cause suffocation; killing many. Along with the death of a good amount of people, the ash would block the sun causing us to experience massive climate changes, but not just for us; The whole world would experience it as well. Science is showing that the potential for an eruption of some of the earth’s biggest and deadliest volcanoes is very real and imminent.
A lot of houses, buildings, cars and other vehicles will be ruined and people can be killed. When a hurricane is done, it rains very hard. Some hurricanes may cause floods or landslides depending on how much water falls. Hurricane Sandy has been one of the most recent hurricanes that have hit the US in the past 15 years. Hurricane Sandy destroyed millions of homes, brought a bunch of sand onto the roads, and killed 209 people.
The Mont Blanc had been carrying benzol on its deck which was set on fire by the sparks from the collision. After desperate attempts to put out the fire, the crew jumped over board and tried to swim as far as possible. The benzol had started to leaked through the decks into the ships hold which contained over 2 700 tons of explosives. At 9:04am the fire reached the ships hold and a massive explosion occurred. The Mont Blanc was launched a mile in the air and over 2.5 square kilometres of the surround area were levelled and windows were shattered as far as Truro, Nova Scotia which is over 100 kilometres away.
The tremendous eruption of Mount Tambora in April 1815 was the most powerful volcanic eruption of the 19th century. The eruption and the tsunamis it triggered killed tens of thousands of people. And the magnitude of the explosion is difficult to fathom. It has been estimated that Mount Tambora stood approximately 12,000 feet tall before the 1815 eruption, and the top 4,000 feet of the mountain was completely obliterated. Adding to the disaster's massive scale, the huge amount of dust blasted into the upper atmosphere by the Tambora eruption contributed to a bizarre and highly destructive weather event the following year.
A volcano is a surface landform resulting from the extrusion of magma from underground as lava, ash, rocks, and gasses are erupted in various proportions. A hazard is something that poses a threat to life, the environment or property. Volcanoes can compromise all these things through the many hazards volcanoes presents. These include lahars, flash flooding, landslides, pyroclastic flows, ash clouds and many others. Each year, around 60 major volcanoes erupt globally.
Becoming one the largest volcanic eruptions in U.S history. The devastation caused by the volcano was wide spread. Many plants, countless numbers of animals and insects were killed, along with 57 people who were miners, scientists, and one journalist. In addition to this, further damage to human settlements and facilities occurred. The area is subjected to frequent earth movements and has a long history of volcanic activity.
The ammonium nitrate was packaged in paper sacks, and then it was transported and stored at high temperatures that caused it to react. With such high temperatures, the ammonium nitrate started a fire in a lower hold. The captain ordered his men to steam the hold in hope of preserving the cargo, but soon after the ammonium nitrate detonated causing casualties and massive damage to the shore front along with farther in-land cities. The effects of the massive explosion lead to the SS High Flyer’s ammonium nitrate to explode, as well, causing even more deaths and destruction. 2.
The secondary effects include the fires that broke out all over the city of Kobe, the congestion and chaos on the roads, the closure of businesses and the problem of homelessness. Many more people died in the fires that followed the earthquake. Problems were made worse by the large number of aftershocks (over 1,300). Many of the older, wooden houses completely collapsed. Fire, triggered by broken gas pipes and sparks from severed electrical cables, caused a huge amount of damage, destroying at least 7,500 wooden homes.
