Natural Disaster

Natural disaster refers to a catastrophic event that occurs as a result of natural processes of the Earth. These events can cause significant damage to property, infrastructure, and the environment, as well as loss of life. Here are some common types of natural disasters:


Sudden shaking of the ground caused by the movement of tectonic plates beneath the Earth’s surface. Earthquakes can result in structural damage to buildings, landslides, and tsunamis if they occur under the ocean.

Hurricanes and Tropical Storms:

Intense tropical cyclones characterized by strong winds, heavy rainfall, and storm surges. Hurricanes can cause widespread flooding, wind damage, and power outages.


Overflow of water onto normally dry land, often caused by heavy rainfall, snowmelt, or the breaching of dams or levees. Floods can result in property damage, destruction of crops, and loss of life.
