natural disasters

Natural disasters aren’t defined as natural events themselves, but as the impacts of natural events leading to damage of living beings and their environment, eventually endangering their survival.

Natural Disasters aren’t caused by human beings, but by geological transformations or climatic conditions, but they can still be influenced by humankind; either by environmental impacts inciting or enforcing a natural disaster, or by settlements in dangerously exposed areas. A natural event that does not damage living beings wouldn’t be named a disaster.
