Clues

  • A natural event that threatens people or has the potential to cause damage, destruction or death. (7, 6)
  • 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)
  • 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 initial and direct impact of a natural event on people and property. (7, 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)
