  • 2. NATURAL DISASTERS A natural disaster is a major  adverse event resulting from  natural processes of the Earth; examples include floods, volcanic eruptions,  earthquakes, tsunamis, and other geologic processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or property damage,and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake, the severity of which depends on the affected population's resilience, or ability to recover
  • 3. DISASTER IN INDIA  UTRAKHAND DISASTER In June 2013, a multi-day cloudburst centered on the North Indian state of Uttarakhand caused devastating floods and landslides becoming the country's worst natural disaster since the 2004 tsunami.The reason the floods were on such a larger scale than the regular floods the state usually received was because of the debris of the building of dams upstream. The debris blocked up the rivers causing major overflow. The main day of flood is said to be on 16 June 2013.
  • 4.  JAMMU AND KASMIR FLOODS In September 2014, the Kashmir region suffered disastrous floods across many of its districts caused by torrential rainfall. According to the  Home Ministry of India, several thousand villages across the state had been hit and 390 villages had been completely submerged. In actual figures 2600 villages were reported to be affected in  Jammu and Kashmir, out of which 390 villages in Kashmir were completely submerged. 1225 villages were partially affected and 1000 villages were affected in Jammu DivisionMany parts of Srinagar, including the Border Security Force (BSF) HQ in Sanant Nagar & Army cantonment in Badam Bagh, were inundated, and vital roads were submerged, by the floods.
  • 5. DISASTER IN PAKISTAN  DROUGHT  According to Tharparkar district authorities, 99 children and 67 adults (43 men and 24 women) have reportedly died in Tharparkar since the beginning of 2014 due to a combination of chronic malnutrition, a lack of access to effective health facilities, lower than average rainfall in Chachro, Diplo, Khinser, Islamkot, Mithi tehsils (sub- districts), and an outbreak of sheep pox which has killed thousands of small animals.  Crop failure due to low rainfall, coupled with loss of small animals has greatly reduced the impoverished communities’ purchasing power.
  • 6. DISASTER IN NEPAL  EARTHQUAKE The April 2015 Nepal earthquake (also known as the Gorkha earthquake) killed more than 8,800 people and injured more than 23,000.
