3. causes-the cause is that there is an underwater Earthquake and since the Earthquake makes the ground rumble a gigantic raging wave produces and since it reaches quite some high speeds it wipes buildings out and some after effect may be earthquakes for many more kilometers off Earthquakes- what makes an earthquake is the worlds underground plates that is what is holding up the sand under the ocean what holds up the Continants. Tornados-The intense spinning of a tornado is partly the result of the updrafts and downdrafts in the thunderstorm (caused by the unstable air) interacting with the wind shear.

4. impacts

4.1. Millions of people are affected by natural disasters every year, and the impact can be calamitous. From the destruction of buildings to the spread of disease, natural disasters can devastate entire countries overnight. Tsunamis, earthquakes and typhoons do not just wreak havoc on land; they also disrupt people's lives, especially for those living in remote regions.

5. prevention - In Japan they tried to prevent the tsunami by building walls that hopefully stop the tsunami but the tsunami was to tall and went over the wall

6. protection-

6.1. Disaster preparedness includes all of the activities that are carried out prior to the advance notice of a catastrophe in order to facilitate the use of available resources, relief, and rehabilitation in the best possible fashion. Disaster preparedness starts at the local community level; if local resources were insufficient, it would branch out to the national level, and if needed, the international level.Disaster mitigation is the ongoing effort to lessen the impact disasters have on people and property. Fewer people and communities would be affected by natural disasters with the use of this process. Because of the varying degree of each natural disaster, there are different mitigation strategies for each. Outlined in the following tables are some important recommendations for protection against disaster.
