EarthquakesBook - 2007
Earthquakes are difficult to predict. One minute, everything is normal. the next, the ground rumbles enough to rattle dishes in the cupboard--or shakes so violently that buildings collapse. There's an earthquake somewhere on earth every day. Big quakes can topple buildings, crumble homes, and threaten the lives of thousands of people. with dramatic images and first-hand survivor stories--plus thelatest facts and figures--this book takes you up close with some of the world's biggest earthquake disasters.
