Using a named location, explain how hydrometeorological hazards can contribute to a tectonic disaster. (6)
this is what I've got so far; Hydrometeorological hazards are naturally occurring hazards such as flooding, drought, and hurricanes. These natural events can amplify the effects of a tectonic disaster, by increasing a countries vulnerability and testing its ability to cope. An example of this is in the Philippines, a developing, multi-hazard country, particularly susceptible to typhoons, which bring about flooding as well as landslides, caused by earthquakes. The world bank has reported that 74% of the population is exposed to two or more hazards, furthermore, annual damage costs are estimated at o.5% of the country’s GDP. Hydrometeorological events, such as flooding increase the Philippines vulnerability as it spreads water-borne diseases such as cholera by infiltrating water sources. It also slows down emergency response time as transport links become defunct through the combination of earthquakes and flooding.
