The head wave only takes a few seconds, but it kills everyone within a three-mile radius. People at more than three miles can still get unprotected burns. The shock wave destroys all the buildings in a one-mile radius. Like the head wave, the shock wave takes only a few seconds, but it can make winds with speeds of up to 750mph. Finally, the nuclear electromagnetic pulse is made of extremely strong magnetic fields.
The thunder followed the rain. The thunder and lightning were lighting up the outline of the ruined city. In the distance windows could be heard being broken, most likely to places being looted (if that was even possible). Closer there were screams of the mutated coming out to hunt, and the screams of those who were hunted. Buildings stood barren and crumbling.
For this reason, land-mines are categorized in victim-activated weapons.

No place was safe from artillery fire. With the Turkish army overlooking them, snipers were a constant danger. All men lived with the fear.” Howitzer shells are dropping about 30 yards from us digging great hole where they land, the fumes are suffocating, and the shrapnel is pouring all round us getting chaps everywhere.

I threw a grenade into a crowd of them. They all died. I hurried up and grabbed Agent 65. I threw a smoke grenade so we can run for better cover. The militia thought we were still at the rocks we were hiding behind, so they kept shooting there which bought us time to escape.
Analyse the factors that cause differences in the hazards posed by volcanoes around the world. (40 marks) A hazard is defined as a situation that poses threat to life, health, property or environment. However the level of hazard imposed by volcanoes can differ greatly, from a weak eruption not endangering any lives, to a violent eruption that can affect countries all over the world.

Less rainfall means there is less water to enter into the facility and transport radioactive waste. On the negative side there are three things which cause me an unsteady feeling. First, the mountain is in an area where there has been volcanic activity. Because of the activity strong gases have entered into the ground which could cause explosions to be destructive. Secondly, the area has several faults running through the area where the proposed facility was to be built.
Of course then Piggy was killed. This was another mistake because of many things; first of all, Piggy was a voice of reason for all of the boys on the island, even if they never really listened to him. He was very smart and resourceful. Without him the boys just became more uncivilized and ended up setting the whole island on fire to try and kill Ralph.
