Transcript of Iceberg - Water Disaster

Icebergs
Even though
small
chunks of ice floating in the sea may seem
harmless
, large amounts of ice and in massive sizes can cause a
tremendous
amount of damage. The Titanic was built to be indestructible, but a
large
floating piece of ice from the glacier located at the north pole followed the currents, and stopped the tracks of the Titanic.
- iceberg consists of dense water particles (frozen). By the high water currents, the impact of an iceberg colliding with the ship was really
fatal
.
ice-berg [ahys-burg]
noun
1. large floating mass of ice, detached from a glacier and carried out to sea.
On April 13, 1912, RMS Titanic set a voyage from Southampton, UK to New York city. Passengers and crew made up 2 224 people on ship. The crew entertained the passengers on their
luxurious
ride. The Titanic had to go through the Atlantic Ocean in order to succeed its first sail.
Though the captain sent out lifeboats there were still severe amounts of fatalities. The sinking of the Titanic caused the
death
of 1 502 people. This devastating event nearly caused many in misery. Just because of an iceberg.
On April 14, 1912 at about 11:40 pm, the crew spots an
iceberg
in the path of the Titanic. However the crew spotted the iceberg to late and the right side of the Titanic was scraped.
Icebergs are large masses of freshwater ice that broke off a
glacier
or an
ice shelf
and has drifted all the way into the sea. It is hard to determine the size of a iceberg because most of the ice is submerged in the
bottom
of the sea. Even if the
tip

of the iceberg seems relatively small the bottom portion of it may be a larger then what it seems.
April.14, 1912: News spreads that an iceberg is spotted, but never makes it to the captain.
The Titanic took 3 years to build. Starting on March.31. 1909. The ship was built to be "
unsinkable
" however during the events that followed from April.10-April.14,1912, It was proven that it was not "
unsinkable
".
April.15,1912: The Captain orders the crew to drop the life boats and gets the passengers on it.
The sinking of the RMS Titanic was one of the most horrifying maritime

disasters
to happen. Today the Titanic is located in the depths of the ocean. It is just off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The sinking of the Titanic did not only harm the passengers but the sea creatures in the ocean. When it sunk, it disrupts the ecosystem of the organisms living in the ocean.
April.10, 1912: The Titanic is ready to set sail on its maiden voyage. Then Titanic first stops at Cherbourg, France. It then leaves France to head to Queenstown, Ireland.
April.11, 1912: The Titanic makes it way across the
Atlantic Ocean
and heads for New York.
April.12-13, 1912: The ship is still on its way to New York, and passengers are enjoying the
luxurious
of the boat.
April.14, 1912: The captain of the ship, Captain Edward J. Smith, heads of to his cabin to rest.
April.14, 1912: The lookouts spot the iceberg, but it is to late. The First Officer orders the crew to make a left, but the iceberg skims the right side of the Titanic, and makes
fatal
damages.
April.15, 1912: The Titanic snaps in half and sinks to the bottom of the ocean.

Large ice snowball beats invincible ship?
More than just an discarded piece
After the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it made humans more cautious about the dangers of the open seas. Ever since the devastating event of 1912, ship builders have taken more pre-
cautions
, and making ships more safer.

Today the sunken vessel serves as a reminder of the tragic event that occurred on April.14,1912.
The sinking of the Titanic also affected the
wildlife
of the oceans. The
oil

in the ship can cause
pollution
in the water, causing it to destroy the habitat of the sea creatures. Also the other contents of the ship can pollute and destroy the ocean. Although there maybe some positive things to it. Some sea creatures can take shelter in the ship to protect itself from other predators.
