It left 230,000 people dead and drastically affected over 500,000 others. Eleven countries were affected along Southern Asia and Western
Africa. Some other effects were
the spread of disease, and over
$14 billion US dollarsin damage. Now, Earthquake and Tsunami-prone areas have the Earthquake sensors. These sensors helped a lot when the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami occurred earlier this year. To this day, the Indonesian Area never fully recovered. They suffered a major loss in tourism. Even areas that were not hit were still negatively affected because of a fear that the disaster was not yet over. On the March 23, 1989 the Exxon Valdez Oil Tanker ran into Bligh Reef in the Prince William Sound in Antarctica. 10.8 million gallons of oil were spilled into the sound causing the death of millions of fish, birds, otters, seals, and killer whales who lived in the sound. Oil was found on 1,300 miles of coastline. The spill also cost over $300 million to the people whose lives depended on fishing in the sound. Because the Exxon Valdez Spill caused such huge problem both environmentally and economically, measures were passed to ensure that events such as this would not occur again. All oil tankers are internationally required to be doubled-hulled by 2015, and the Valdez was never allowed into Prince William Sound again. Even though it has been more than two decades since the oil spill occurred, the environment is still affected. 17 out of the 27 species of animals found at in the sound have still not fully recovered. Interesting Fact: Scientists knew that an Earthquake had occurred, but an international earthquake warning system had not yet been installed, so they had no way of letting them know. Interesting Fact: The amount of oil spilled was enough to fill 125 Olympic sized swimming pools! Interesting Fact: Scientists knew that an Earthquake had occurred, but an international earthquake warning system had not yet been installed, so they had no way of letting them know. How do disasters affect the economy? How do disasters affect tourism in or around the area? How did the government react to unnatural disasters? The California Gold Rush was one of the largest migrations in history. Half a million people from around the world “rushed” to California to try to find gold for themselves after James Marshall found a few tiny Gold Nuggets in 1848. California became a state in 1850 because of the rapid population growth. Today, California is still a very highly populated area.
