Which of the following best explains how a hurricane can increase an area’s susceptibility to future storms? a. Storm surges cause massive damage to buildings along coastlines. b. Hurricanes often flood coastal communities. c. Hurricane strength winds cause large amounts of property damage. d. Erosion caused by hurricanes can leave coasts more exposed to storms.

The correct answer is d. Erosion caused by hurricanes can leave coasts more exposed to storms.

When erosion occurs, layers of land are removed and the land under it is usually more susceptible to further erosion. The next time a storm happens, even a weaker storm might be able to erode that new land that would be revealed following the erosion after the first storm. It just keeps happening in nature and is a common occurrence.

The Agricultural Revolution helped spark the Industrial Revolution by increasing the amount of food produced and by

The Agricultural Revolution helped spark the Industrial Revolution by increasing the amount of food produced and by decreasing the number of farmworkers. It happened because better-paying opportunities were often available in industrial units.

 

EXPLANATION:

• The Agricultural Revolution in Britain demonstrated to be the main turning point, enabling the population far surpass earlier peaks and maintain the country’s rise to industrial pre-eminence. It was projected that total agricultural production grew 2.7-fold between 1700 and 1870 and production per laborer at a similar degree. The Agricultural Revolution granted Britain the most prolific agriculture in Europe, with 19th-century crops as much as 80% higher than the Continental average.

The rise in the food supply subsidized to the rapid development of the population in England and Wales, from 5.5 million in 1700 to over 9 million by 1801, even though domestic manufacture gave way progressively to food imports in the 19th century as inhabitant more than tripled to over 32 million.

• The upsurge in productivity enhanced the weakening of the agricultural part of the labor worker, supplementing to the urban labor force on which industrialization relied. The Agricultural Revolution has been mentioned as a cause of the Industrial Revolution. As enclosure divested much of access to land or left agriculturalists with plans too small and of poor quality, rising numbers of workers had no option but move to the city. However, mass rural trips did not happen until the Industrial Revolution was already started.

• The most crucial growth between the 16th and mid-19th centuries was private marketing development. By the 19th century, trade was done nationally and most agricultural production was aimed at markets, not farmers and their families.

• The next stage of development was inter-market trading, requiring traders, credit and future sales, and markets’ knowledge and pricing along with supply and demand in dissimilar markets. Finally, the market advanced into a national market driven by London and other developing cities. Trade was aided by the roads’ expansion and inland waterways.

• With the regional market development and ultimately national markets assisted by better transportation infrastructure, farmers no longer relied on their local markets. It freed them from owning to decrease prices in local markets that were oversupplied and inability to sell surpluses to distant areas that experience shortages. They also turned out to be less subject to price-fixing regulation. Agriculture becomes a business, not merely a resource of survival.

Winds, flooding, storm surges, and heavy rainfall are the potential effects of a hurricane.


If the sea level begins to go up, it is called a storm surge, meaning that it was caused by the winds pushing it towards land, and also the suction that is created by the low pressure. Heavy rainfall and flooding go together. Mostly every hurricane brings terrible rainfall, which can be categorized as heavy and can also cause damaging flooding. The flooding is one of the deadliest issues when it comes to a hurricane. Winds can also be caused by a hurricane. A category 1 hurricane ranges around 74 - 95 mph wind, while category 5 ranges from over 155 mph wind.
