So powerful, it actually costs the earth to wobble on its axis. Slowing its revolution and shortening that faithful day like most three seconds. A 2004 tsunami is a mega disaster; that came out to know where or did not. Here the fears to be getting more deadly than ever before. We know that there are many cases where the worst has not yet been seen. Are natural disasters becoming more frequent and more deadly. To find out will explore one of the century’s most destructive events. And examined three critical cities are earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes are poised to strike death lost against helpless populations. Can we avoid the outburst of our violent planet or we like this man on a beach in Thailand, helpless in the path of mother’s nature fearing.
This suburb on the Bandar Acheh in northern Sumatra just before the tsunami and after one bridge survived, the oceans on slot the early. Yesterday 30,000 Sumatra live inside at this bridge. But the oceans are people killed nine out of ten people here. Yulianto and his son redo miraculously. 2004’s disaster Yulianto read our up more than their possessions. Father and son scour refugee camps in search of Redo of two sisters and his mother. It is been a century since a major tsunami that hit more than Sumatra. But the Islanders fear they have not seen the worst. The monster that terrifies them came from a commonplace force of nature.
About a dozen tectonic plates make up the earth’s crust. Floating on a sea of magma these massive slabs constantly jostle each other. Just off the coast of Sumatra a fault line with the India plate and the Burma plate meet. As one subducted the other released a tremendous amount of energy this is a thrust fault and it create killer quake. And because it happened under water it displaced a massive volume of ocean, breading the quakes deadly twin a tsunami. The quake was among the most devastating in history. Measuring up to 9.3 of the Richter scale it exploded with the force of more than 36,000 Hiroshima attack bombs. Staggering size make scientists worry about the future of our planet.
Geologist John Ebel desperately scours seismic records to find out, good more becoming. Risking aftershocks and disease scientist take stock just how large it was. A tsunami scientist Jose Barreiro uses surveying tools and GPS mapping to quantify the tsunami’s power at maximum impact. And analysis of the waves destruction could offer ways to protect people from the next one. And planet that seems ever more by Mike Brown exploits almost guaranteed. Already Borrero reaches a conclusion that should send chills coastal city dwellers everywhere. Living in a city actually makes people more vulnerable to this disaster than elsewhere.
Scape, almost impossible, the surging water tore through town gathering cars, trucks and building to build into raging wallop destruction. As people scrambled for safety, the town’s buildings, and the unstoppable jumping onto narrow streets, were bulldozed everything and it is path. Speed increased in the reach of death climbed ever higher. The difference between life and death was merely measures inches. Death may be planning another visit to Sumatra. Land geologist estimates that only a fraction of its volt just six percent of its total length cause the killer quake. That leaves ninety-four percent some 2400 miles of the fault line apparently doormat, there is more. This quake may spawn a future killer quake. Somewhere else in the world., a new theory suggests earthquakes caused by a global chain reaction.
