A natural disaster is defined as an event that has substantial consequences for people and the environment. Natural disasters can result in severe damage to lives, homes, infrastructure like roads or railways which may take years to rebuild, depending on the extent of the destruction.

Natural disasters occur all over the world when natural activities, like tectonic movements and ocean currents, take place in the earth’s crust. They are usually caused by soil erosion, seismic activity, or air pressure which can wreak havoc on human lives if not carefully monitored and controlled. 

Natural disaster relief has become a global concern due to increased awareness of environmental degradation that may lead to such calamities as earthquakes causing landslides; volcanoes erupting leading to forest fires etc.; tsunamis occurring from coastal areas affected by sudden sea-level rise; climate change triggering floods thereby submerging entire villages underwater along coastlines where there is deforestation taking place for mining purposes among other causes too numerous to list.

It can be hard to handle a disaster when it occurs. It’s even harder if you don’t know how they happen in the first place! When we try to understand disasters, there are three ways that cause them:

  1. Natural causes (earthquakes, floods and tsunamis)
  2. Man-made causes (chemical spills or pollution) 
  3. Complex reasons which involve more than one type of reason for why something happened.

What Is Left Behind A Natural Disaster?

Natural disasters result in a humanitarian crisis. A plethora of issues arise during and after, including damages to infrastructure, public health problems such as diseases or injuries sustained from falling debris/objects due to the disaster itself (such as fires), scarcity of food and water sources which can lead people being displaced for long periods of time with little access to supplies needed for basic survival needs like clean drinking water; further emotional shocks that may cause individuals who have already lost everything they had previously cherished are now dealing with psychological distress caused by this natural catastrophe-causing an economic impact on survivors’ lives overall.

Whatever causes the natural disasters can’t be changed and therefore disasters are going to happen. And when they do, those who feel them most strongly will be the ones in poverty because of their lack of resources for safety and mitigation efforts.
