By natural disaster I don’t just mean a hurricane or volcano..ect I mean a specific natural disaster that happened. Also by report I mean an information text.

I already thought of Haiti and the tsunami of japan, any others?

Thanks for the help!

Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there became a strong concern in this country
about our ability to cope with natural disasters. Due to the expensive cost of
acquiring detailed data about the hazard before, during and after the event, many
agencies are putting systems forth to allow citizens affected by the events to
contribute details about their surroundings. This may be in the form of data sent
over a mobile phone, or Internet connection to a PC. Please weigh in your thoughts
about using this system as a method of coping with natural disasters by taking this

We help everybody else out with food, money, rebuilding, aid and other things.
Who helps us out when when we have a natural disaster? Like hurricane katrina, somewhere around 82 billion in damage, thats alot of money.

Who comes to our aid, Now during hurricane earl, who again will help us out?

Why do we rush to aid other countries, but to my knowledge which could be wrong, no other countries rush to help us?

I need to find three news articles for a school assignment about a natural disaster effecting Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia, and have so far found none (despite it being in an area prone to cyclones, bush fires, floods and drought).

for example, when an insect outbreak occurs, forests become more susceptible to forest fires, and if the insects are of the defoliating sort, they can cause trees to die directly. does that make it a natural disaster?

Tell me what you think of the impact that a natural disaster has on society (families,businesses,friends).
What do you think about the U.S. helping out Haiti?
Should other countries help out?
