There are so many types of disasters that can affect people’s lives in no time, so it’s good to know about them. And such disasters are:


As you know, earthquakes are at their peak nowadays. Now and then we read about them in the news. Like last month, in Turkey, over 50000 people died because of this disaster. Asian countries like Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan have faced this disaster so many times in the recent past.

Like 1 week ago, some areas in India felt a tremor and the epicenter of the earthquake was in Afghanistan with a magnitude of 6.5, almost 30 people died in the incident.

There are so many ways from which you can prevent it, some of them are – Don’t stay beside walls or under the eaves, open a door to the outside of the office/home to secure an exit to evacuate, and Do not use the elevator.

Emergency Diseases (Pandemic Influenza)

So, for the last 3 years, we have been aware of the word PANDEMIC. Over lakhs of people lost their lives while battling Corona.

So, it’s important to take action against it by wearing masks, using sanitizers, following social distancing, and whenever you come from outside always washing your hands with hand wash or soap. Following these will help you in preventing the disease from contacting you.

Extreme Heat

In the United States, more than 600 people lose their lives to extreme heat every year. You cannot prevent this illness. As summertime approaches next month, the temperature will be much hotter than average.

So, it’s important to follow these things – Drink water as much you can, take a cold shower twice or thrice a day, apply sunscreen before going outside, and have fruits like watermelon, guava, and mango because they help you to stay hydrated and boost your immunity so your body can easily face this illness.

Floods and Flash Floods

Floods and flash floods mostly occur in the rainy season or when Dam demolishes and the sudden release of water by ice jams. A flash flood is caused by extreme or heavy rainfall in a short period, generally less than 6 hours.

If a flood is likely to hit your area, you should run to a safe place where the flood won’t be able to come. And if you have some time, try to collect all the necessary things like food, blankets, and water because you may live without a home for some days.    

Agricultural Diseases and Pests

In Agriculture, infections are crop diseases prompted by bacteria that destroy whole crops. There are so many types of disease due to enormous numbers of bacteria, some of which are: Wildfire of tobacco, Fire blight symptoms, and Granville wilt.

Damaging Winds

By the name itself, one can guess that Damaging winds cause a lot of damage. Let’s discuss how it damages society. The damage depends on the speed of the wind. For example, if the speed of the wind is not more than 30km/hr then it won’t hurt people, but it will destroy some trees and shops which are made of low-quality items.

There is a place in New Zealand named Wellington. People call it windy wellington because the speed of the wind there is always high. Winds of high speeds not only damage houses and trees but with them, there is a high chance of cyclones that end up killing more lives than winds.

Drought and Water Shortage

Overuse and the wastage of water is the main reason behind the shortage of water. We can prevent it by doing things like saving water in the dam and using it in dry areas to overcome drought. And we can also use rainwater harvesting before rainwater reaches the ground, we can store it to overcome such disasters.
