Elements in the USA

The United States of America is a huge country with an extraordinary variety of natural conditions. It is not surprising that the United States is hit by the elements from time to time.

One of the most terrible dangers that several US states are exposed to is tectonic and volcanic activity. Mountains (Olympic, Cascade, etc.) stretch along the western coast of the USA, which are part of the ” Pacific Ring of Fire “, a volcanic mountain range that “girds” the ocean and is extremely susceptible to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In the United States, the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii are in the “danger zone”, in whole or in part. It was here that the most destructive earthquakes and eruptions in the history of the United States took place, relatively weak tremors are very frequent here.

In 1906, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in San Francisco claimed the lives of about three thousand people, and more than two hundred and fifty thousand residents of the city were left homeless. In the city, 80% of the buildings were destroyed, and the destruction caused directly by the shocks was exacerbated by the resulting fires.

On March 27, 1964, a massive earthquake hit Alaska. With a magnitude of 9.2, it was the most powerful earthquake to hit the United States and the second most powerful ever measured by a seismograph. The earthquake caused landslides and a tsunami, the wave height of which reached sixty-seven (!) meters. One hundred and thirty-nine people died, most of them due to the tsunami, the wave of which reached not only California, but also Japan, Peru and New Zealand.

On May 18, 1980, there was a catastrophic (five points on an eight-point scale) eruption of the St. Helens volcano, located in the Cascade Mountains, in the state of Washington, one hundred and fifty kilometers south of Seattle. The volcanic eruption was accompanied by a magnitude five earthquake. Fifty-seven people died, two hundred and fifty houses, forty-seven bridges, twenty-four kilometers of railways and two hundred and ninety-eight kilometers of roads were destroyed. It was the largest volcanic eruption in the United States in modern times.
