Natural disasters are a leading cause of human mortality, damage to private and public property, the deterioration of human health and environmental degradation. Natural disaster impact and disaster intensity is similar across developed and developing countries, but developed countries have better disaster management and advanced disaster warning systems to prevent the post and pre disaster impact compared to developing nations. Evidence shows that the USA has faced the highest number of disaster events (506 reported events between 1974-2003) compared to any other country, but less number of people have become victims of these disaster events (4.5 million between1974-2003). On the other hand, developing countries like India and Bangladesh
This result not only loss ecological balance but also impact directly on human societies. In the environment aspect, firstly they disturb animal habitats leading to ecological destruction. Furthermore, forest fires contribute to global warming which has the devastating effect on the planet. In term of economy, when fires approach homes can burn properties and damage to forestry areas, the whole communities have to be evacuated. The last one is effect on society.
Also these two natural disasters cause an average of 80 deaths and 60 injuries a year which is a lot if you add up all those years. Hurricanes can cause massive destruction. And are formed in the sea. Hurricanes can also cause massive paths of destruction, they are so big they can cause damage in several states. In the middle of the hurricanes there is nothing happening which is called the eye.
