Natural Disaster is Nonsense

Actually, disaster losses happen because we do not prepare for natural hazards such as hurricanes, earthquakes, drought, floods, etc. We are vulnerable. If we prepare our houses for wind or shaking then you will be more like Chile after a huge earthquake, and not Haiti, where nothing was done to prepare its structures or society for a big earthquake.
In other words, so-called “natural disasters,” as if nature caused the disaster, don’t exist–the term is nonsensical. It is the human race and its failed policies that cause the losses.
