world's natural disasters

The effects of a disaster can be amplified due to poor planning of human settlements, lack of safety measures, emergency plans and warning systems and man becomes a bit fuzzy.

To the institutional capacity to reduce disaster risk group, they can trigger other events that will reduce the chance of surviving it because of gaps in planning and security measures. A classic example is earthquakes, collapsing buildings and houses, leaving people trapped in the rubble and broken gas pipes can ignite and burn casualties under the rubble.

Human activity in areas with high probability of natural disasters is known as high risk. High-risk areas without instrumentation and appropriate measures to respond to natural disasters or reduce their negative effects are known as areas of high vulnerability.
