Natural disasters shatter lives. I know. In 2004, the Indian Ocean tsunami shattered mine. They also wreck communities and, sometimes, even entire countries. Sudden cataclysmic disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and floods cause devastation on impact. Slow-onset disasters such as droughts inflict persistent damage over time.
