Natural disasters are naturally occurring events that can cause severe threats to the public health.

Tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, and earthquakes each have a classification system developed to gauge the intensity of the event by assessing a number of set factors. These classification methods help researchers study disaster patterns. They also help to educate the public and encourage them to plan and prepare for potential disasters. 3 Lesson 1: Katrina Strikes FINANCIAL AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Why is it important to prepare for life events or activities in which you want to be successful?
