By definition, a natural disaster is an event that is caused by the natural forces of the earth and results in great damage and possibly loss of life. Each year, the earth experiences a number of natural disasters. When natural disasters occur in heavily populated areas, a lot of people may lose their lives. A recent example is the Italian earthquake of 2016, where over 200 people died. The deadliest of all earthquakes happened in 1556 in China, where approximately 830,000 people lost their lives.
Roughly 350 weather-related catastrophes were recorded each year between 2005 and 2017. The five countries hit the hardest were the United States, China, India, Philippines and Indonesia, according to the report.
