About Natural Disasters and Their Effects

A Natural Disaster is any kind of destructive/catastrophic event that occurs naturally. These disasters can be anywhere from a minor flood to a city-destroying tsunami, and they often cause major property damage and serious injury, possibly even death. Predictive technology and emergency procedures have massively reduced the casualties caused by these events, but even then, certain natural disasters may come without warning and be very devastating to homes and businesses.

Some of these natural disasters include:

-Earthquakes

-Tsunamis

-Floods

-Hurricanes

-Avalanches

-Landslides

-Volcanic eruptions

-Sandstorms

-Tornadoes

-Hailstorms

-Forest fires

-And many more

More often then not, natural disasters such as these can cause hundreds of thousands in property damage. This is the official unofficial playlist for Natural Disasters and the threat they pose.

"Who'll Stop the Rain" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Creedence Clearwater Revival: Who'll Stop The Rain
This song talks about how a terrible rain forced a person and many others to seek shelter, and how the rain just keeps going and just won't stop. I chose this song because terrible rain could be considered a natural disaster, as it could cause massive property damage and cost a lot of money to fix.

"When the Levee Breaks" by Led Zeppelin

When The Levee Breaks Led Zeppelin +Lyrics
This song is about the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, and how many people had to seek shelter during the flood. The song mentions how the hard rain would have caused the levees to break, and the issues that would have been if that had happened.

“All These People” by Harry Conick, Jr.

All These People
This song is about Hurricane Katrina, and the suffering that the people involved in the disaster had faced. All proceedings that this song generated were donated to the New Orleans Habitat Musicians' Village, in response to the Hurricane.

“Shelter in the Rain” by Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder - Shelter in the Rain (Video)
Another song about Hurricane Katrina, this song was meant to be a comforting song for the people of New Orleans, and all proceedings of this song were donated to the Wonder Foundation in their efforts to provide relief to the people of New Orleans.

“The Saints Are Coming” by Green Day and U2

U2 and Green Day "The Saints Are Coming" video
One last song about Hurricane Katrina, this song sings about how the people of New Orleans were able to overcome the disaster and how people not involved in the disaster were able to band together to provide relief for the people of New Orleans.
