EarthquakesBook - 2005
Although disasters-both natural and man-made-are frequently in the news, it is sometimes difficult to understand how people and communities manage when disaster strikes. How do food and medical supplies get through when roads and railways are destroyed by earthquakes or floods? Where can people find shelter when their homes are devastated by storms or war? How can communities survive when food crops continually fail? With vivid first-hand accounts and shocking photographs, Earthquakes puts the reader in the center of destruction by explaining what happens when an earthquake occurs and how the lives of ordinary people are affected. It also explains how governments, aid agencies and individuals from around the world can provide help in this time of need. Book jacket.
