Hurricanes Vs. Volcanoes
  • A research into the devastation of natural
    disasters in Spanish speaking countries.

Natural Disasters
  • "Events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods,
    tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and tornadoes are
    natural disasters because they cause high amounts
    of devastation. Spanish speaking countries are
    effected yearly with such natural disasters.
    Anna Neale and Connie Watson

Hurricanes
  • Dominican Republic 1508 destroying...the entire
    population of Buenaventura
  • Mexico 1615 San Miguel (400 tons) sunk in storm.
    "Nothing was saved, not even the crew or
    passengers.
  • Cuba 1778 greatest loss of human lives by
    drowning
  • Dominican Republic 1680 submerged...many
    vessels...(including) twenty-five ships of
    France...causing the death of most several
    Spanish ships lost as well.

Volcanoes

Volcanoes
  • PARACUTIN
  • Rarely do volcanologist get to watch the birth,
    growth, and death of a volcano. Paricutin
    provided such an opportunity. The eruption that
    created Paricutin began in 1943 and continued to
    1952.
  • Lava flows covered about 10 square miles and had
    a volume of about 0.3 cubic miles.
  • Three people were killed by lightning associated
    with the eruption.
  • The effect an eruption will have on a nearby city
    could vary from none at all to catastrophic. For
    example, atmospheric conditions might carry ash
    away from the city or topography might direct
    lahars and pyroclastic flows to unpopulated
    areas. In contrast, under certain atmospheric,
    eruption and/or topographic conditions, lahars,
    pyroclastic flows, and/or ash fall could enter
    the city causing death and destruction.
