A natural disaster is the consequence of a natural hazard, such as volcanic eruption, earthquake or landslide which affects human activities. Human vulnerability exacerbated by the lack of planning or appropriate emergency management leads to financial, environmental and human losses. The resulting loss depends on the capacity of the population to support or resist the disaster. Human history is replete with various types of natural disasters, some recent being Tsunami in Indian Ocean, Sichuan earthquake, Orissa super cyclone, and Katrina hurricane in the U.S. This book describes the characteristics and magnitude of these deadly natural disasters, along-with the damages and causality caused by them as well as their social, economic and environmental impacts. Also, it presents some moving stories of survival and rehabilitation.
