Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis • Level T 17 18 The edges of the plates, where earthquakes and volcanoes often occur, usually lie near the edges of the oceans. The shaking of an earthquake or the explosion of a volcano can cause large landslides. Entire hills can collapse, and sometimes they fall into the sea and make huge waves. Earth Shattering Events explores geological and meteorological disasters, with each page dedicated to a different natural event from volcanoes and tsunamis to cyclones and wildfires. Each event is explained in a way that is easy to understand for junior children without compromising on presenting the underlying scientific facts.
