Six of the World’s Most Deadly, Dangerous, and Disastrous Oceans and Seas

According to Greek Mythology, Poseidon was God of the Sea and the “Earth-Shaker” of earthquakes. It is he that controls the plan of the oceans to destruct and destroy.

  1. Indian Ocean

    The Indian Ocean is the third largest in the world covering close to a 1/4 of the water on the Earth’s surface. The warm temperatures maintained by the Indian Ocean make it highly susceptible to monsoons, cyclones, tsunami’s, and strong winds.

    In 2004, there was an earthquake that occurred at 00:58:53 UTC  The quake itself is known “by the scientific community as the Great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake“.  The earthquake was caused by subduction (an area of convergence where one tectonic plate moves under another) and triggered a series of devastating tsunami’s resulting in over 226,000 deaths, while over 1 million people were left homeless.

    In 1970, there was a catastrophic cyclone that struck E.Pakistan and India’s West Bengal . Close to 500,000 people lost their lives in the storm, chiefly as a result of the storm surge that flooded much of the low-lying islands of the Ganges Delta. Till this day, the  Bhola cyclone was recorded as one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern times.

    Interesting and scary article Lauren. The seas have great power. Was jogging one morning along the northern California coast and was not close to shore when I came upon a sign saying that the Tsunami of 1964 reached that spot. That made me realize just how powerful the oceans really are.

    Lauren,
    Even in my area of the Northwest coast of Washington, we have Tsunamis warnings posted around some of our local beach areas.
    Bless you,

    Great article. I have always been fascinated with nature and particularly intrigued by the mystries surrounding our world. The amazing and staggering realization is that even our most advanced scientists have not been able to find explantions to some occurences.
    Hhmmm…… how awsome.
    Thanks for sharing this. Its most educative and informative. God bless
