[SOLVED] Natural Disaster

***Rewrite an essay on a natural disaster report. ***Implement a news story into my essay PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME AND READ MY INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDING SECTIONS AND NOTES Using the Internet, locate a news story on a natural disaster type listed above that has occurred somewhere in the world.  Sources must be cited in-text as well as in the references section. All sources used, including your original news story, must be cited. Use reputable sources, such as peer-reviewed journals, established news organizations or government sites; do not use encyclopedias, dictionaries, blogs, “wiki” pages, anything like askme.com or enlightenme.com, or other “personal” webpages as sources; avoid using “news aggregation” sites – these are sites that do not report, rather, they “collect” stories. Also, definitely avoid tabloid-type “news” sources; stick to the reputable mainstream agencies. Informational sites (like government agencies) are not news agencies; you must locate a news story, to begin with; researching and finding specific history on the topic will come as you put the paper together. Government sites (FEMA, USGS, NOAA, …) can be used for some information and data, but they should not be a primary source; use peer-reviewed journals as primary sources for support, and news articles for more current informational needs.  SECTION 1: INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL INFORMATION (150 words minimum required) Provide a broad introduction to the event (not the disaster type in general). Where and when did it occur? Reference two locational maps showing where the event occurred, one small- and one large-scale; place maps at the end of the document, before the Reference page (if you are not sure about the difference between a small- and large-scale map, please look it up before proceeding). SECTION 2: FATALITIES, INJURIES, AND DISPLACEMENT (150 words minimum required) How many people were killed and/or injured? How many people were displaced (forced to move or left homeless)? What is the estimated damage amount (in USD)? SECTION 3: PHYSICAL ASPECTS OF THE EVENT (500 words minimum required) Describe, in detail, the physical aspects, including magnitude (as measured by the scale specific to that disaster), that lead to the particular event (NOTE 1 below)– do not go in to detail about the disaster type in general – this paper should not cover how those phenomena work in a general sense – discuss the physical aspects of the specific event you are writing about. SECTION 4: EVENT ANALYSIS (600 words minimum required, evenly balanced) Could this disaster have been prevented? Why or why not? (NOTE 2 below) Was the affected population prepared for this disaster? Why or why not? How does this disaster rate in terms of historical disasters (of the same type) for both the geographical area in which it occurred and worldwide? Discuss the mitigation strategies,  response, rescue, and recovery efforts – were those efforts adequate for this event? Why or why not? What impacts did this event have on society and history? SECTION 5: CONCLUSION (100 words minimum required) Wrap-up the paper (i.e., summarize all main points; hint: it helps to write the conclusion (as well as the introduction) last, that way, you know what to introduce and conclude!). Do not present new information in the conclusion. NOTE 1: Do not provide a lengthy passage on that disaster type in general, you need to describe the physical aspects of the specific event you are writing about in time and space – meaning, do not give me two paragraphs about how earthquakes happen, or how hurricanes work, I want to know the unique geophysical, hydrological, meteorological, and/or atmospheric details of the specific disaster you are writing about. NOTE 2: Here I am asking you if the “disaster” could have been prevented; that is, the interaction between humans in the environment. Do not state that “the earthquake could not have been prevented” or “the tornado could not have been prevented”, etc…of course the actual physical event could not be prevented, I know that you know that (humans do not control weather or geophysical events); answer whether or not the disaster as it impacted the community could have been prevented(see Chapter 1 for help with this).  There will be a 10-point deduction if any statement is made akin to “the [physical event] could not have been prevented because we can’t control those things…”, or anything similar.
