A natural disaster is the effect of the earth's natural
hazards, for example flood, earthquake or landslide.
They can lead to financial, environmental or human
losses. The resulting loss depends on the vulnerability
of the affected population to resist the hazard.
If these disasters continue it would be a great danger
for the earth.
