Along with the vocabulary, this blog also presents countless phrases which can be used in different situations and can be used to describe the details of the disasters.
The Irish word for disaster is "Tubaiste". There are three different types of disasters: natural, man-made, and hybrid. We will be teaching you the vocabulary for all three types one by one.
Ireland is relatively safe as compared to many other countries which are often getting disturbed by natural disasters. In 2020, Indonesia, USA and China were the top three countries that have been affected the most by natural disasters. Ireland successfully escapes that dreadful category.
Natural disasters cause great misfortune in a certain country and tend to affect the economy disastrously. Many students get deprived of their studies due to such disasters. Such catastrophe causes countless fatalities and many people lose their lives. The location of countries on the planet matter a lot in this regard. Ireland's largest earthquake was of magnitude 5.4 which occurred in the Irish Sea in 1984.
In the history of Ireland, there have been various natural disasters. The most interesting thing is that all the natural disasters are mostly caused by or are a response to other phenomena in other parts of the world. One example of a major disaster that shocked the world is the earthquakes that took place in 1755 and 1761 in Lisbon which also paved the way for tsunamis into Ireland.
