For the first case, a massive flood displaced nearly eight-hundred graves in Hardin, Missouri in 1993. Authorities found displaced human remains over twenty-six square miles of land; fifty people were killed; 55,000 homes were damaged or destroyed; 58,000 people were displaced. It was a truly atrocious, upsetting scenario in which the likelihood of finding bodies was very low, and the procedures were costly. The public expected a lot from the anthropologists, hoping that they would work quickly and be able to recover all of the bodies of their missing families and friends. (Shows like “CSI” and “FBI” may give people an unrealistic expectation of these sorts of jobs.)
Because over 100,000 people died bodies had to be buried in mass graves. Communication systems and transport routes were damaged by the earthquake so emergency aid was extremely difficult. Workers and survivors alike became angry at this lack of aid and looting and riots broke out in many areas. Aftershocks are still occurring reaching up to 5.9 on the Richter scale. Even though the process is slow Haiti is recovering many charities have been set up to provide emergency housing, food and other areas of the recovery.
| 1 in 5 people lost their jobs because many buildings were destroyed, Haiti’s large industry clothing was one of the worst affected, and were a lot of people lost their jobs. | 250,000 homes, 30,000 other building were either destroyed or badly damaged this included the presidents palace and around 60% of the government buildings. | Because of the large number of deaths the hospitals reached their capacity and bodies had to be piled up out on the streets. | Transport and communication links were badly damaged and destroyed, things like bridges. | The amount of bodies out on the street caused a lot of diseases to spread, diseases like, cholera.
It is an unfortunate incident, only to become even more devastating to the Christian peoples. The Armenians, the Pontic Greeks, and the Assyrians were all forced from their homes by gunpoint and made to march all day. They left their homes in the lush, green lands into the exceedingly hot, dry desert with very little food and water to survive. The combination of intense climate change, malnutrition, dehydration, disease, and violence led to thousands of these people dying during the marches. One of the most moving accounts of this atrocity is Thea Halo’s Not Even My Name.
The main area hit was San Francisco yet, it did affect almost all of the San Andrea’s Fault. Damage and casualties after the San Francisco earthquake were devastating, 498 deaths in San Francisco, 64 deaths in Santa Rosa and 102 deaths near San Jose. 225,000 from a population of around 400,000 were homeless. 28,188 wood and brick buildings were also destroyed by the
Sidakmeet G20 Riots The G20 riots that broke down on July 26 2010 in downtown Toronto made a day in the history of Toronto with largest mass arrest about 1118 protestors were arrested and caused damage worth million of dollars to the public property, shops and historical buildings and injuries to several people. No one had ever seen anything like this in Toronto and cops were trying their best to bring everything under controlled but riots were getting more intense. During the course of the G20 summit about 2000 angry protestors broke away from the protest route and headed toward the convention center where the summit was on its way but they were unsuccessfully as police maintained their blockades, protecting the fence. Protestors smashed the windows of various office buildings and stores along Yonge Street, Queen Street West using hammers, flag poles, umbrellas, chunks of pavement and mailboxes as the conditions were getting bad security was more tighten and more cops were called from neighbouring cities help calm the people. The first property damage reported was a Nike store and even the police headquarters was damaged by the protestors the riots were keep on getting more intense as now the protestors started blazing police cruisers on fire in various location and many bank branches were damaged which led to a total lockdown to Younge street police even the transportation was put on lockdown all the buses and subway was halted.
After the Black Saturday bushfires, many people died and many properties were destroyed, causing grief to the owners, friends and family of them. The money to repair the damage was a big problem because of the bushfire’s immediate wreckage, and the survivors ran out of money before they could even finish the houses, and with the add-on of fireproofing this raised the cost to rebuild. What were the environmental impacts from the Black Saturday Bushfires? The environmental impact from the Black Saturday bushfires was the biggest impact, as more than a million animal wildlife injuries and deaths would tally more than 1 million. There was 1 specific wildlife, the Lead beater’s Possum, which only had one habitat, and unfortunately was part of the Black Saturday bushfires, which puts that animal on the list of “threat of extinction.” http://youtu.be/EmG5kQBsOpg Black Saturday- Inside the firestorm ABC1 Video about what happened inside the firestorm.

Secondary Effects The secondary effects were much more numerous that the primary effects. These included many systems shutting down, i.e. electricity, gas, plumbing, etc. Fires that were started by broken gas pipes and broken electrical wires, spread through the city, rapidly destroying the many wooden houses (approx. 7500 houses were destroyed).
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.
