1-Speech on Earthquake

Respected Principal, Teachers and Dear Students!

Earthquakes occur periodically in different parts of the world. An earthquake, like a flood or a famine, is a natural disaster. When such things happen, men become helpless.

We often read in the newspapers that an earthquake has occurred in a certain place. We know that many people have lost their lives.

Earthquake shocks occur during the earthquake. Sometimes these shocks are light and are not dangerous in nature. Sometimes shocks are very serious. People feel that the ground beneath their feet has slipped.

There was a tremendous earthquake in Kutch of Gujarat on Republic Day in 2001. It destroyed life and property very much.

During an earthquake, people lose their homes and even their lives. Some are trapped in houses that collapse due to earth shaking.

The earthquake in Gujarat has had a huge impact on human life. Many died because they were asleep, there was a holiday; Enjoy long sleep when the earthquake arrives. Those who awake during the earthquake run away in open and save their lives.

Sometimes the roads are also broken by an earthquake. Due to the earthquake a part of the road can suddenly sink.

Like earthquake victims, flood victims have to start life again. The government tries to help them to some extent.

Newspapers and other social service organizations have extensive campaigns to collect money for earthquake victims. They meet with a generous response from the public. It is our duty to help our destitute countrymen in their crisis.

Thanks !


2-Speech on Earthquake

Good morning honorable Principal Madam, teachers and my dear friends!

As we know that in our area recently there has been an earthquake and people have suffered greatly. The buildings collapsed and people living in the buildings were killed or too much injured. For the help of the victims, our school has organized a camp to relieve those people, due to the damage caused by earthquake. Students and others who are interested in helping those people through voluntary feeding, clothes etc., they can go to the camps in the school playground. We all sympathize with them and in this way I hope they will get a lot of help from all of us. But before the camp started, I would like to discuss some information about the earthquake, because understanding the reason behind the earthquake has become very important.

So, what is the earthquake? The tremor of the earth's surface is known as earthquake. It is caused by volcanic activity or movement around geological flaws. Due to earthquake, the release of energy in the lithosphere of the earth causes the seismic waves. Seismic waves are vibrations that we feel during earthquake. An earthquake can be measured by the frequency, type and size of the earthquake experienced over time. Due to low frequency some earthquakes are less harmful and some of them are so violent that they can destroy everything.

There are many such places around the world that face the worst and most destructive earthquakes like China, Japan etc. While there are slight earthquakes in some places like Antarctica. According to the Asia scale, maximum earthquakes are witness. In many countries around the world, most of the destruction was due to earthquake.

In order to control or reduce the occurrence of earthquake, we have to move forward to take strict measures. Environmental erosion is the main reason for the increase in earthquakes these days. Deforestation, high presence of CO2 in the atmosphere, deficiency of water bodies, volcanic eruptions are some of the main reasons for earthquakes coming to Earth. We have to understand the importance of nature. We must protect the water bodies carefully before reducing the water shortage or using it through rain water harvesting. Applying more trees in our surroundings, where this case can be of great help at any time. Reduction in fuel use that produces C02 or other harmful gases will help in reducing pollution which causes climate change and many other problems.

This is a high time when the earth needs to be protected from harmful disasters which are the cause of humans and it can only be possible when we take some measures.

On this note, I would like to include my words and special thanks to our Honorable Principal Mam to help earthquake victims and to make such a great and great effort to help all the students, teachers and people. I am making this camp successful. Now those students and others who are willing to help, they can reach the camp site at the school's playground.

Thanks and I wish all the great days ahead!


3-Speech on Earthquake


A very good morning women and gentlemen!

First of all, I want to thank all of you for supporting us in this program which has been organized to spread awareness among people about earthquake. As we all know that the incidence of earthquake is increasing day by day in our country and thus it becomes important for everyone to take steps to save lives. Our motive behind this incident is to make people aware and ready to take preventive measures against earthquake.

Earthquake causes lots of destruction every year and with the decline in the environment, it is growing rapidly. Earthquake is the moving of the Earth's surface, which can be the cause of many geological factors. As a result, there are seismic waves or vibrations. It can be the least and harmless, or it can be the highest and devastating. They are also known for other disasters such as tsunami, floods, landslides, avalanches etc. They are unpredictable and can happen anytime or anywhere. Scientists are working to identify the methods of earthquake prediction. Usually, the earthquake lasts for less than a minute but it is not always necessary.

Recently, India has seen earthquakes at about 4:30 in Gurgaon and Haryana and it was up to 4.4 magnitude. It surprised people living in the area. Earthquakes have been observed not only in India but in other countries around the world. USA, Japan, China etc. are the countries that suffer from earthquake. Most of the earthquakes were mild but some of them left people in shock with destruction. Tsunami, earthquake, avalanches, etc. can be a cause for earthquake, it can be very dangerous for places because it can cause movement in buildings etc. which can cause them to collapse. This can cause loss of properties etc.

Now, there are some important measures that should be taken to be safe in case of earthquake as possible. Suppose if you are under a building then running it will be very dangerous and in this way a person should stay where he is and hide it under any table such as glasses, crockery, etc. Keep away because it can be dangerous and can be seriously injured. There are several ideas that vary according to your location. Okay, they were some improvised measures that should be taken on time but there are some other remedies that should be taken and practiced in our daily life and they will have a solution. Long-term impact on our planet like planting of trees, water bodies Defense, reduction in fuel consumption etc.

To help people understand this, some activities are organized that they should do during the earthquake and I hope maximum people will participate in it. This is the time when we all have to come together to fight the disasters like earthquake and make our earth green again.

On this note, I want to end my speech and specially thank all those who supported us in organizing this event and it is possible that with all the people to join us and make it successful This is possible.

Thanks and I wish all the great days ahead!


4-Speech on Earthquake

Respected Principal, teachers and dear students!

First of all, I would like to thank the school authority for inviting me to your school's annual festival. I am working with Environmental Hazards and Disaster Management, India. I am going to share some important information about earthquake.

You are a young and intelligent child, the future of our nation. You should be aware of some important steps when a natural calamity occurs. I am sure, you will remember the 2001 earthquake that happened in Gujarat, also known as Bhuj earthquake. It was the worst earthquake it was on January 26 when the entire India was celebrating the annual Republic Day.

A devastating earthquake lasted for almost two minutes, killing 19,727 people, including many schoolchildren and about 166,000 people were injured.

I'm sure you know that earthquake is tremble of the earth. When the fragments of the earth's crust are moved suddenly, it causes the earthquake. The thin crust, which is the outer layer of the earth, is cold and is a delicate cliff unlike the deep rock inside the earth. The thin crust is filled with small and large cracks called the defect. These defects can be very long, but we can not usually see cracks because they are deeply hidden inside the earth and the earth's crust is very tightly bound together.

The main forces that capture the pieces of the crust also cause the earth to move gradually. The earth's crust will be stuck together for many years, but ultimately the dominant force to suppress them will force them to break into pieces and move them. Such sudden movement in the rock will shake all the rocks around the earthquake.

All of you should be aware of the steps taken during and after the earthquake. When an earthquake arrives, you should reduce your movement. You should know that most injuries occur during the earthquake because people panic and start to wander around, consequently fall and suffer from fracture, sprain and head injuries. You should make sure that your head and torso is safe. If you get an opportunity to leave the school premises when the shock is stopped, then you should use the stairs instead of a lift or a lift. Aftershocks and power outages can leave the elevator in damaged position. Before leaving your school premises or your home, you should ensure that there is no debris or debris of the building which may fall on you.

If you are in the playground or away from home, then you should return only when the local authorities confirm the security of the environment. You should take care of your relatives, neighbors, friends and yourself and get the first aid in case of any injury.

It is commonly seen that after the devastating earthquake, light shocks of the earth are continued; You should be prepared for potential landslides, aftershocks, or even greater disaster. If you feel like an aftershock, then you should drop yourself and catch that situation. One more thing to consider is fire. If you observe a small fire, then try and extinguish.

Most of the time, in the event of an earthquake, people become numb; If it continues for a long time, sometimes earthquakes can be devastating. You should not only try yourself, but also others. Beware of moving the earth and work wisely.



5-Speech on Earthquake

Dear friends,

Today is the World Disaster Reduction Day and I have been specifically called in this meeting so that you can be informed that our company has taken some important steps to prevent natural disasters. One of the most dangerous natural disasters is earthquake, and we all know how devastating it can be during the earthquake incident or if it does not take proper care after its stoppage.

Earth's sudden and rapid movement is due to the earthquake and the shaking of the strong rock. The initial soft mixing can be strong and can be heavy within seconds. In most cases, an additional earthquake known as aftershock can also follow the initial earthquake.

Earthquake can occur at any moment or day of the year and can be without warning. Even though they usually live for less than a minute, sometimes aftershocks are more dangerous and can happen for hours, days, weeks or months. Although scientists are working on this, earthquake can not be estimated.

Our office has taken significant measures to curb disasters as a result of earthquake. Although our office has been built on quake-proof technologies, it is important that we remain self-conscious and work wisely in the event of earthquake. You should be aware of the steps to be taken in such a situation, whether you are in the office premises or at your home.

When you feel the earthquake, protect all those things that may fall down and cause injuries; Such as water heater, computer, TV, music system, mirror, bookshelves and light fixtures. You should also practice how to drop on the ground, cover your head and neck with arms and move on. If you see a safe place nearby, then you should try to reach it, so that you do not see yourself flying. To maintain the cover, crawl and hold in that position.

Even if an earthquake arrives, you can sometimes be amazed or frozen, but you should work fast and try to store essential items like medicine, water and documents. You should also plan and practice with family members how you communicate with each other. Preparing an emergency communications plan for the family and various ways can help in the case of crisis.

It is also advisable to consult a structural engineer to evaluate his home for weak and strong areas from the earthquake perspective.

Earthquake or any natural disaster is dangerous and many buildings are damaged, in which loss of life is lost. When earthquakes and aftershocks stay, then you should look for a clear path to safety. Ideally you should leave the building and go to an open place like a field etc., check others and your injuries and provide first aid if you are trained. If you are safe and sound you should also get help with the rescue. Do not try to remove heavy debris or stay with yourself. While assisting in the rescue program, you may also need to provide emotional support to many troubled and stricken people. Criticism of an earthquake may depend on the point of focus and epicenter, due to which many buildings may collapse or may drop the foundation, it can also cause damage to the utilities or may cause explosions and fire. In this way, you should be cautious and work wisely in such situations.



6-Speech on Earthquake

Dear Colleagues,

An earthquake is the moving of earth due to fragments of the earth's crust, which suddenly changes. Crust, thin outer layer, is cold and brittle rock compared to most hot rocks. This crust is filled with large and small cracks called defects. Although these flaws can be hundreds of miles long, usually you can not see cracks because they are deep underground burials and because crust fragments are tightly compressed together.

The powerful forces that compress these crusted pieces, they move very slowly due to them. When two pieces that are next to each other are pushed into different directions, then they will stick together for a long time (many years), but eventually the forces pushing them to separate and move Will forge. This sudden change in the rock shakes the rock around it.

Earthquakes occur due to sudden release of stored energy. This energy has remained a long time as a result of the tectonic forces within the Earth.

Most earthquakes occur with defect in the upper 25 miles of the surface of the earth, when one side accidentally moves faster than the other side. Due to this sudden movement the shock waves (seismic waves) arise, which are radiated from their original point, which is called Focus and travels through the Earth.

These are seismic waves which can cause the motion of thast land, which are called earthquakes. Every year there are thousands of earthquakes that can be felt by people and there are more than one million devices which are strong enough to be recorded by the devices.

Strong seismic waves can cause local damage and they can travel a long distance. But even weak seismic waves can travel far and can be traced by sensitive scientific instruments called seismograph.

Different types of seismic waves:

When you throw a rock in a calm lake, you see the waters (water) flowing through all directions in the direction of water. When you pop a balloon, the sound waves go out in all directions through the air. When the rock within the Earth is deep, it sends seismic waves in all directions through the Earth.

Moving Plates:

Seismic waves start when a large part of the rock suddenly moves. This rock movement creates at least three types of waves: primary (P) waves: waves of pressure when pushing the rock or pulling forward or backward.

Primary waves, the fastest wave sent by earthquakes; Travel down the earth instead of the surface. (Remember: P waves - primary, pressure and push-and-pull). Secondary (S) waves: Shear waves caused by the shifting of the rock, which slips or slips from side to side, such as the wavy motion of a slippery snake.

Secondary waves, the second fastest wave sent by earthquakes; Travel down the earth instead of the surface. (Remember: S waves - second, shear, side-to-side) Surface (L) waves: up and down (rolling) or side-to-side-motion motion of the Earth Surface.

Waves of the surface, the slowest earthquake waves, travels down the earth along with the surface of the Earth. Although they are the slowest of all earthquake waves, L waves usually cause more damage to the society than P or S waves.

The names of the L waves were named after a geologist, who studied them. (Remember: L waves are always the last to come. Every earthquake produces these three types of waves: P and S. travel the earth towards the bottom, and the L waves pass over the crust. There are many ways to measure the earthquake.

Two of the most common methods are:

1. Richter scale which measures the size of seismic waves and measures the energy left in the earthquake.

2. Merchel scale which measures the result of earthquake, such as shaking and losses that actually feel and see.

Facts About Earthquakes:

1. Earthquakes are due to the speed of the Earth's large plates.

2. Plate tectonics is the recycling process (upholting, eroding and sinking) of the Earth's plates.

3. Defects are areas where the Earth's plates come together.

4. The shocks caused by earthquakes are caused by seismic waves.

5. Primary Wave (P Wave) is the fastest seismic wave.

6. P waves push and pull rocks.

7. P waves are the reason for the loud voices heard during the earthquake.

8. Staggering voices are the results of P Waves that transmit in the atmosphere as sound waves.

9. The secondary waves or shear waves (SWaves) are the slowest of waves.

10. S. Waves can not travel through fluid.

11. P waves shake the ground vertically and horizontally.

12. P and S waves are body waves.

13. Bodywaves are reflected and vary in different forms of Surface Waves.

14. Focus is the place in the earth's crust where the earthquake begins.

15. The sub-center is the vertical area to focus on the surface of the earth.

16. Earthquake is measured by the Richter scale.

17. The higher the number on the Richter scale, the more intense the earthquake is.

18. Small earthquakes occur often but are not felt by the citizens.

19. Seismograph is a device that detects earthquakes.

20. A symmetric seismograph has a burial sensor.

21. Earthquake is known as triangulation, pinpoint is done using a process.

22. Tsunamis can come from earthquake.

23. Earthquakes can cause cracks in the surface of the earth.

24. Big cities have more damage than earthquakes.

25. Earthquakes can break gas, water and sewage lines, which can contaminate fire, flood and water supply.

26. Every state has an earthquake in the United States.

27. Earthquake usually lasts less than a minute.

28. Aftershocks can be felt for many days after the initial earthquake.

29. It is not possible to predict when an earthquake will occur.

30. The highest recorded earthquake on the Richter scale is 8.9.

31. There will be earthquake again where earthquake has occurred.


ffects of Earthquake:

Ground Shaking: A large earthquake can shock the violent ground for one minute. It can be very difficult to stand during an earthquake. Several hundred aftershocks can be felt in the weeks following the main earthquake.

Slope failure (landslide): Damage from earthquake-driven landslides can range from severely weak foundations and structural failures to total destruction.

Liquefaction: Ground-shaking treats some soils as liquids, from which the structures are submerged, bends or bends.

Defect Movement: The breakdown of the mistake could include horizontal and / or vertical movements of several meters. Due to this, buildings, roads, water sources, gas lines and electrical wires can get worse, which cross the fault line.
