Clues

  • A natural hazard caused by the movement of tectonic plates. (8, 6)
  • A sudden or violent movement within the earth's crust followed by several aftershocks. (10)
  • Actions taken before a hazard strikes to reduce its impact. (10)
  • Attempts to forecast when and where a natural hazard will strike based on current knowledge and information. (10)
  • Reactions that occur later in the weeks, months and years after the event. (4, 4, 8)
  • Recording physical changes to help forecast when and where a natural hazard might strike. (10)
  • The boundary between two tectonic plates. (5, 6)
  • The indirect, after effects caused by the natural event. (9, 7)
  • The probability or chance that a natural hazard may take place. (6, 4)
  • The reaction of people as the disaster is happening and in the immediate aftermath. (9, 9)
