Sorry, I beg permission to use this term. I don't agree with the terms of natural disasters. Nature, not giving a disaster. They have a life. Humans had to adapt. Because humans, only boarding in nature. Even some of the natural response, is caused by human activities. Come make friends with nature!

If we do anything that is against the law of nature, it will really take its toll. There are many subdivisions around my place where the contractors did something to the rivers' natural flow. In effect, the river would overflow when it rains so hard. And, this results to flooding.

I disagree with you. The parts of nature (wind, the Earth's crust, rain) that cause disasters aren't alive. And some disasters, like earthquakes, cannot be due to human activities. While it is true that humans do need to adapt, this does mean that disasters aren't disasters. It just means that we need to do more to prepare for those natural disasters.

I totally agree with you. Infact we are responsible for messing around with the environment and when something bad happens we tend to call it as natural disaster. I think a better term to use would be man made disasters.

Yes. I can follow. You are mentioning about deforestation -- tree cutting, sand removing from river beds. When we reduce the number of trees rain comes down. When sand is removed from river beds-- that causes floods and other disaster.

Yes, that's true. Nature reacts. Thank you for your comment, Ravisivan.
