Poll question: What is the worst kind of natural disaster?
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Sat Dec-06-03 06:13 AM by La_Serpiente
I am looking for an answer based not on the monetary damages, but of the ferocity and intensity of the natural disaster.

Edit: Hopefully, we can learn how different countries respond to different disasters. Share any information that you feel is necessary.
