Earthquakes and Other Natural Disasters

Shake, Rattle and Roll

Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tsunamis...natural disasters of all kinds seem to be on the increase around the globe. When they happen, we are fascinated, horrified and saddened by the ferocity and destruction that accompanies them.

What is behind Mother Nature's fervor during those times? Where are the safest places to be? New Orleans is a prime example of a city who sorely needed some emergency preparedness before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. But how can people prepare for a disaster?

Our HubMobsters will attempt to answer these questions and more for you here. Give the hubs below a read to find out what causes earthquakes and other natural disasters, as well as how to be as ready and stay safe in the event of a disaster in your area.

Please don't forget to leave some feedback for our authors who have worked hard to bring you this information.

Thank-you and happy reading!

      Thanks, Lissie. Yes, I do it for every HubMob but I can't take credit for the idea. I think it was ProCW who did the first one.
