Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Causes and Effects of Earthquakes The Causes and Effects of Earthquakes What is an earthquake? an earthquake is shaking of apart of the earth's surface and the shifting of tectonic platesthat often causes great damage. What Happens to the Earth? What Happens to People? What Happens to the Buildings? Around 37,000 houses are known to have been repaired, rebuilt or built. However, less than 20% of the housing solutions provided as a response to the disaster could be seen as long-term, or sustainable. Instead most programmes have simply provided temporary measures, such as the construction of temporary shelters and the allocation of rental subsidies. More than 2 million people were left homeless after the earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010. "scientists studying the Indonesian earthquake of Dec. 26, 2004, have calculated that it slightly changed our planet's shape, shaved almost 3 microseconds from the length of the day, and shifted the North Pole by centimeters."-NASA scientists Earthquakes release methane that is held in pockets within the earth. These pockets are generally located at sub-sea level and can be released by the shifting of tectonic plates, earthquakes. Methane is classed as a greenhouse gas and is much more harmful than carbon dioxide when released. People are affected by earthquakes more than buildings and the earth because those two sections also have a great affect on us. - Family member or loved one dying- Being left homeless - Natural causes affecting your way of life after a few years- Financial damage- Getting trapped under the rubble inside your house- Tsunamis are formed afterearthquakes and destroy theirpath at the beach - Fire damage- Flood- Collapsing- Falling through (as shown in picture>)- Ripping out of the ground- MUCH MORE Haiti's flag
