Hurricane Sandy hit New York on 29th October 2012. Causes of the hurricane include the water in the Atlantic Ocean was 3 degrees hotter than normal. This is due to climatic change; the extra heat in the water was a major cause of the hurricanes formation. Warm water is vital in the formation; the water helped intensify the storm and enabled it to produce more rain. Another factor includes the rising sea levels; these enabled the storm to be much more damaging storm surge than before.
And although they offer financial and technical support, there are still problems on the Northern Beaches coastline. The erosion on Collaroy Beach is one of the worst cases in NSW, and without efficient action the problem will only get worse. In 2002 the Warringah council proposed to build a seawall on the beach. This was met with much criticism from the community, mainly due to the fact that a seawall would destroy the beaches natural beauty, something that no one wants to see. The designs for the sea wall cost roughly $100,000, and to build the wall would cost upwards of $11,000,000, of which 40% would be paid by the homeowners of Collaroy.
As people have to be hired to clean up, and people not wanting to go to dirty beaches. Cost money to people working at the beach.This problem doesn’t just occur in the Persian Gulf, it occurs world wide. A study from the university of Georgia, February 3rd 2015, claims that about 8 million metric tons of plastic trash enters the ocean every year. Pollution in the Persian gulf is negatively impacting marine life, as oils spills occur, and ocean mining is at it’s peak, but most importantly sewage dumping. Believe it or not we are all a witness of watching someone litter, or us littering.
This flood was induced by a typhoon that had hit the mountain ranges afterwards and led to surface run off. In this case the country was affected greatly and more than the Californian flooding disaster of 1996-7 because they has no risk management put in place for that particular disaster, meaning the water could simply run into the villages. Secondly they has been hit by a typhoon, many people’s homes had already fallen into disrepair or destroyed, and the flood just helped more to destroy. The people were already vulnerable, flooding helps pass around disease, more people were at risk, as they only had partial homes. On the other hand in California in 1996-7 they were experiencing sub-tropical storms, it had been the wettest December in a while.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, looting, violence and other criminal activity became serious problems. The rescue efforts, had most of the attention of the police, causing the security to weaken (Hurricane Katrina, 2010). There was a concern that the constant flooding would lead to health problems. In addition to dehydration and food poisoning, there was also potential of the spread of various infections and disease. All related to the growing contamination of food and drinking water supplies in the city in combination with the city’s heat and humidity
They are afraid to walk at night in case they get attacked. I feel that they would prefer it to be how it used to be, it has changed to much. The crime rate has gone up, the fly tipping and vandalism is big in the area, the police and community officers are trying to help the area. Jasmine Ayre mentions something about when the area looks dirty and run down the crime rate goes up and people do not want to live in that area. I feel that’s an inequality, because when people do not want to look after there area or things start going down hill instead of helping prevent it the problems get worse and people move away.
For example: Noise - A noisy environment can mean road works, loud music, and transportation. Setting - Pictures, signs, decorations and poor lighting can distract people which makes them lose focus. Time - Meeting at the wrong time and phonecalls at the wrong time can affect communication. Space - Overcrowded places for example corridors, public transport, offices and stores can affect communication. Distance can also affect communication, if people are trying to communicate and there is a gap between them it can cause a communication barrier.
This is part of the Australian identity because many refugees suffer the problem Anh Do suffered while coming to Australia on a boat. The book review uses descriptive language technique to successfully describe the terrifying boat journey from Vietnam to Australia. An example can include “they almost lost their lives on the high seas, but nothing including frightening pirates, disease or dehydration as they drifted for days or imminent threat of death…” This suggests that the boat trip was dangerous and life threatening. It gives a negative connotation of the boat
The beautiful city in north eastern Italy, made up of 118 small islands separated by canals and connected by bridges, cannot provide parks or relaxing areas because of its small size and its composition. This results in visitors resting and eating on bridges, narrow alleys, doorsteps and shop windows, obstructing even further of the already congested city. Similarly to Barcelona angry locals of Venice plastered the city with leaflets reading 'Tourists go away! You are destroying this city'. Majority of the tourists that visit Venice each day come via a cruise ship and visit for a day tour.
That is why people flee their home-countries to seek a shelter from danger threatens them. For instance, Kiribati Island that is situated in Pacific Ocean often suffers from the natural disasters. The most recent disaster to impact Kiribati was a flood in late 2008, which affected 85 people. In 1999, a drought affected 84,000people. Kiribati has a lack of natural resources because of the earthquakes
