Another problem is trash lifted by the tsunami waters from anywhere and everywhere, including debris from the earthquake disaster, has also been released and swept out to the ocean. The ocean’s waves and currents distribute the trash, along with the nuclear waste, throughout the waters, polluting the environment, near and far. Along with the physical devastation of getting infrastructure usable again, Japan is faced with environmental issues and daunting health concerns that must be improved, if not solved. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is one of the largest and oldest plants in the world existing for over 40 years now. It is now facing great threat due to the recent natural disasters.
The immediate effect of the Oil spill impacted the wildlife which included oil-coated birds (Ducks) and sea turtles. “In-situ burning oil” (the burning of oil in a contained area on the surface of the water) was used as a method for the treatment of the oil spill which negatively impacted the environment. Hence, the Bp Oil spill negatively impacted many components of the environment and other factors, making it the largest disaster in American history. The Bp Oil Spill crisis occurred due to the company’s negligence bringing awareness to the disastrous impacts it has cause on different industries. The Bp Oil Spill greatly impacted the environment teaching the companies to strengthen the approach to preparedness and response planning.
In addition to disruption in the national economy, a damage to private and public properties also contributed to the overall economical effects of hurricane Katrina. The economy of the country was slow down significantly due to hurricane Katrina. . Hurricane Katrina: Environmental Effects The environmental damages and threats on public health were the longest-lasting effects of hurricane Katrina. The industrial wastes, oil spills, household sewage, toxic chemicals and other hazardous pollutants had swept to the directly hit areas as well as neighboring regions.
In the 2005, a Hurricane named Katrina brought with it a massive force of destruction, once again change the live of many within the country. These events brought new meaning to crises intervention in the United States. In this paper, the topics being discussed our not the horrible events of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, but on highlighting crises interventions and future trends of crises intervention. The discussion will include brief sections that describing what is crises intervention, to the historical development of crises intervention, and discussing two future trends facing crises intervention. Plus brief personal look into it as well.
Poor infrastructure means that information about impending hazards does not always reach those who are to be affected, leaving little time to prepare or evacuate. This increases the vulnerability of the population and therefore the risk of problematic impacts, this particularly true when Cyclone Nargis struck in May 2008 and caused huge devastation in the military dictatorship of Myanmar,$10 billion worth in damage, majority of the population worked on the flooded rice fields therefore they lost their harvest and their income, 75% of buildings collapsed but on the delta 95% collapsed. Bu the Cyclone also had many social impacts a death toll of at least
Fukushima, the nuclear power plants center, had been one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters regions. Serious damage affected many industries, and it greatly change Japan’s state of macroeconomy from several parts. Exports continued to fall because electronics industry, car industry and food industry that are important portion of Japan’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) were seriously damaged. The country accounts for 16.5 percent of that revenue in the consumer electronics industry (“Japan quake”, 2011). Sony, Toshiba, Kyocera, and Canon, are among the many industry heavyweights in the industry headquartered in Japan.
[Writer Name] [Subject] [Date] Comprehensive Personal Emergency Plan Earthquake Section One introduction A natural disasters is when extreme events which cause great loss of life and or property and create severe disruption to human lives, such as an earth quick. Natural disasters are a part of life that takes place unexpectedly affecting people and their living environment. Floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes can be devastating. Even more devastating are the consequences of not being fully prepared (Smith, 101-106). As a student and residence of IUB (Indiana University Bloomington) its better for us to understand how earthquakes occur, we have to go in depth and explore the fundamentals of this natural phenomenon.
Drawing on concepts from psychology, engineering, and ecology, researchers have been discussing and investigating the notion of land depletion in human communities. Natural disasters drastically destroy properties and force people out of their homes. Often, these rearrange the landscape by tossing buildings, upending roads, toppling trees, reshaping rivers, scattering debris, and rendering a community unrecognizable to its residents. Such as landslides that are susceptible to erosions, communities get damaged and destroyed, and the people inevitably get devastated. These cause evacuees to deprive the safety they most need.
This pollution has since affected their health and has resulted into more cancer deaths, miscarriages, defects in births, dying of livestock and the sick fish. The attempts to solve the problem and prosecute those involved have proven futile since the county‘s judicial system is marred by corruption. The company was required to clean up its mess and pay for the damages. The toxic waste dumped in the area is believed to be of an estimate of 18 billion gallons, and its remains are still present to date.The company that took over the ownership from Texaco was later ordered to pay eighteen billion dollars for the damages. This was to act as the reparations for the
Future trend in crisis intervention Megan Countryman BSHS/471 July 7th 2014 Joseph Wilner Future trend in crisis intervention Crisis intervention will change in the future as more resources are discovered to help people. One of the most important things that will affect people forever is natural disasters. There are current interventions that will improve in the future for people who experience these terrible natural disasters. Natural disasters arrive quickly and leave quickly but the communities they affect are left with long and difficult damages. The damages that a natural disaster causes can be physical, monetary, family structure, and mental injuries that will not leave with the natural disaster.
