Disaster Report: This natural disaster list covers important natural disasters in the world with detail update report.
The natural disaster data are collected from different sources like USGS, EMSC, GDACS, EDIS.. A daily natural disasters list (published everyday) includes details of all (almost) natural disasters occurred worldwide.
The major natural disasters are linked to definite page containing update report on that disaster.
From the earthquake and tsunami in Japan to fourteen disasters causing over a billion dollars each in damage in the United States, 2011 was particularly damaging for developed countries. While developed countries generally have the resources to respond to the effects of natural disasters, when a major disaster strikes they still have to deal with responding to offers of international assistance. Post-disaster recovery and reconstruction after a major disaster are long-term processes which need much more scrutiny and attention. There are still major methodological difficulties in terms of measuring the effects of natural disasters, especially when it comes to measuring the economic costs of disasters and understanding the particular characteristics of slow-onset disasters such as drought. Reviewing 2011’s natural disasters, Elizabeth Ferris and Daniel Petz analyze the range of disasters and lessons to be learned from those that occurred in developed countries.


The number of disasters was almost 20 percent below the average annual figure of 384 natural disasters from 2001-2010. Given the fact that developing countries are also experiencing an increase in the percentage of elderly people, it is likely that a lack of focus on older persons in all phases, from planning to emergency management to post-disaster reconstruction, can result in higher fatalities among older people, long-term chronic health issues, psychosocial trauma and isolation. The major natural disasters are linked to definite page containing update report on that disaster.
Flooding in Australia (Daily update under "Natural Disasters in Australia")-Army troops have moved from Nathalia to Barmah to isolate the properties at the risk of flooding-According to government officials in Australia, evacuation order for Nathalia may be lifted on Wednesday afternoon-Now, flows from the Murray, Murrumbidgee and Darling Rivers are not expected to cause any flooding or access problems to towns along the Murray River.
Natural disasters are a reality the entire world must deal with: from hurricanes, to flooding, to tropical storms and earthquakes, these events prove the awesome and destructive power of nature. 2011 was the most expensive year in terms of disaster losses in history, mostly because of a spate of disasters affecting developed countries.
The post-tsunami Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan poses serious questions about preparedness for technological and industrial accidents caused by natural hazards as well as questions about the safety of nuclear technology. The interconnections between disasters (especially mega-disasters), media coverage and humanitarian funding means that humanitarian funding tends to be directed toward disasters that have higher media coverage rather than to those with disaster-affected populations in greater need of assistance. Globally, the economic cost of disasters in 2011 was $380 billion, of which $210 billion were the result of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.


Higher levels of preparedness, resilience and good governance in many cases help richer countries to recover faster from natural disasters than poorer ones. In terms of both the number of disasters and the number of people affected by them, 2011 was a below-average year in comparison with the previous decade. Examples from last-year’s disasters in the rich world show that investment in disaster risk reduction and preparedness pay off and are cheaper than postdisaster reconstruction. More work is needed to recognize the positive contributions which older people can make in reducing the risks from disasters, in disaster response and in recovery and reconstruction.
With 302 disasters recorded by the International Disaster Database (EM-DAT), 2011 saw the lowest number of disasters since the beginning of the millennium. Several positive trends in international humanitarian response were evident in the course of 2011, including promising developments in international disaster law, greater emphasis on disaster risk reduction and preparedness, and better communications during crises, including the use of social media in disaster response. While natural disasters result in higher economic losses in rich countries, fewer people tend to be affected and loss of life is less than in developing countries.
