storm - very strong wind and big waves. For storms are the winds in excess of 20 m/s, that is more than 9 points on the Beaufort scale. If the wind speed of the storm is over 60 kilometers per hour, it is given its own name.
Avalanche - snow is falling or loosening from the slopes of the mountains. Avalanches can pose a considerable danger, causing human casualties and causing significant damage to property. The amount of snow in the avalanche can reach several millions of cubic meters. However, dangerous to life can be even avalanche of about 5 m3.
During a volcanic eruption, lava, tephra and various gases are expelled from a volcanic vent or fissure. Eruption may be the time period from several hours to years.Volcanic eruptions belong to geological emergency situations that can lead to disasters.
volcanic eruption
One of the most frightening and destructive phenomena of nature is a severe earthquake and its terrible aftereffects. An earthquake is the sudden, rapid shaking of the earth, caused by the breaking and shifting of subterranean rock as it releases strain that has accumulated over a long time.
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.
Natural Disasters
Flood - flooding of the territory with water, which is the natural bestvideos to have information about the upcoming flood allows to warn the population and to take appropriate precautions. The most effective way of dealing with floods in the rivers flow regulation through the creation of reservoirs. For flood control on the seashore of used protective dambisa one way of dealing with floods is the deepening of the rifts and other shoals.

Limnological catastrophe
Limnological catastrophe is a physical phenomenon in which a gas (usually CO2) are bubbling to the surface from the depth of the reservoir, and the threat of suffocation wild animals, livestock and people. Limnological disaster characterized chemical composition, weight and origin gases, duration of discharge and «trigger» of the disaster. These emissions might cause a tsunami in the reservoir due to displacement of the water rising gas.
For example, the largest earthquake since 1900 was in Chile in 1960 with a magnitude of 9.5. This and many others can be found in the NEIC lists by year, country, etc. in related links below.

We can only predict earthquakes
Kīlauea, the famous Hawaiin volcano, has been in continuous, effusive eruption for thirty years, and has the longest-observed lava lake.

A hurricane led to a victory of the Spanish over the French for control of Fort Caroline, and ultimately the Atlantic coast of North America, in 1565.

The 1931 Central China floods or the Central China floods of 1931 were a series of floods that occurred in the Republic of China. The floods are generally considered among the deadliest natural disasters ever recorded, and almost certainly the deadliest of the 20th century (when pandemics and famines are discounted)

In many countries around the world, waterways prone to floods are often carefully managed. Defenses such as detention basins, levees,[13] bunds, reservoirs, and weirs are used to prevent waterways from overflowing their banks.
On August 21, 1986, possibly as the result of a landslide, Lake Nyos (Cameroon) suddenly emitted a large cloud of CO2, which suffocated 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock in nearby towns and villages.
