Natural disasters are extreme and sudden events caused by environmental factors that injure people and damage property. Extreme implies that such events are very severe, sudden implies that they also happen unexpectedly. Although there is no a precise pattern of the occurrence of such phenomenon, the general trend, is that: a the yearly number of natural disasters increases, b the disasters are becoming extraordinary more powerful and active in a shorter period of time.

Natural disasters and man-made responses: are we protecting environmental health?

Swiss Reinsurance Company. This study reports on the worldwide economic losses from over natural catastrophes and man-made disasters recorded in and the cost to the global insurance industry. It specifically analyses the catastrophes cost to society, the insured losses and the gap between insured and non-insured economic losses, which points to a widespread lack of insurance. A special chapter on flooding in this edition of sigma reveals that flood loss potential can be just as high as that of earthquakes and storms. Analysing the floods in Thailand and their impact on the global manufacturing supply chain, the report points at the combination of factors — large affected areas, high concentration of property values, high insurance penetration, and insufficient pre-disaster risk preparedness — that multiplied the loss. It calls for businesses, governments, and societies at large to increasingly consider more stringent natural catastrophe and man-made disaster risk prevention and mitigation measures, especially in emerging countries of growing significance to the interconnected global economy; and for the insurance industry to further examine the implications of global supply-chains for a more holistic risk assessment going forward.

Types of disasters: Definition of hazard

Earthquakes, floods and landslides, etc. In recent years these hazards took toll of thousands of lives and caused massive destruction of property. These have adversely affected the vital sectors of our development as agriculture, communication, irrigation, power projects and rural and urban settlements. The time and cost overrun in some cases have been enormous but their indirect impact on our economy has never been calculated. The unique geo-climatic conditions have exposed this country to natural catastrophes. Disasters can be defined as a sudden, accidental event of great magnitude that causes considerable damage to life and property.

This paper aims to provide graduate students, researchers, and government and independent agencies with an overview of disaster types. Disaster types have been the subject of research by and concern to academicians and to government and independent agencies. The paper summarizes the views of researchers and agencies. Disaster types are collected from several sources such as technical, general articles, internet web sites, and internal reports. Disaster definitions, criteria and types are reviewed. The paper presents a comparison between the main types of disasters.

View all blog posts under Articles. Disasters are unfortunate events that almost always end in the loss of life and destruction of property. They happen randomly and suddenly, and have been occurring since before recorded time — well at least natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, landslides, hurricanes and tornadoes. It was only a couple of hundred years ago with the invention of industry that people brought about unnatural man-made disasters.

Disaster types

A disaster is a serious disruption occurring over a short or long period of time that causes widespread human, material, economic or environmental loss which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources. They may even alter the course of history by broadly affecting entire populations and exposing mismanagement or corruption regardless of how tightly information is controlled in a society.

Natural disasters and man-made responses: are we protecting environmental health?

 Несмотря на все мое уважение к вам, сэр, - продолжал настаивать Чатрукьян, - мне никогда еще не доводилось слышать о диагностике, в которой использовалась бы мутация… - Коммандер, - перебила его Сьюзан, которая не могла больше ждать.  - Мне действительно нужно… На этот раз ее слова прервал резкий звонок мобильного телефона Стратмора. Коммандер поднес его к уху.

 Это что еще за чертовщина? - возмутился Джабба. - Сидите тихо, - приказал Фонтейн. Люди на экране вроде бы сидели в каком-то автобусе, а вокруг них повсюду тянулись провода.

 Меган! - завопил он, грохнувшись на пол. Острые раскаленные иглы впились в глазницы. Он уже ничего не видел и только чувствовал, как тошнотворный комок подкатил к горлу. Его крик эхом отозвался в черноте, застилавшей. Беккер не знал, сколько времени пролежал, пока над ним вновь не возникли лампы дневного света. Кругом стояла тишина, и эту тишину вдруг нарушил чей-то голос. Кто-то звал .

Если спасение Сьюзан равнозначно крушению его планов, то так тому и быть: потерять ее значило потерять все, а такую цену он отказывался платить. Хейл заломил руку Сьюзан за спину, и голова ее наклонилась. - Даю вам последний шанс, приятель. Где ваш пистолет. Мысли Стратмора судорожно метались в поисках решения.

Он, конечно, с легкостью мог набрать код лифта и отправить Сьюзан домой, но она нужна ему. Она должна помочь ему найти ключ в компьютере Хейла. Стратмор пока не сказал ей, что этот ключ представляет для него отнюдь не только академический интерес.

И, что, на взгляд Хейла, было еще хуже, влюбилась в университетского профессора, который к тому же зарабатывал сущие гроши. Очень жаль, если она истратит свой превосходный генетический заряд, произведя потомство от этого выродка, - а ведь могла бы предпочесть его, Грега. У нас были бы красивые дети, - подумал .

Халохот повернулся к алтарю. В тридцати метрах впереди продолжалось святое причастие. Падре Херрера, главный носитель чаши, с любопытством посмотрел на одну из скамей в центре, где начался непонятный переполох, но вообще-то это его мало занимало. Иногда кому-то из стариков, которых посетил Святой Дух, становилось плохо. Только и делов - вывести человека на свежий воздух.
