The molten lava spewed from the Hawaiian volcano of Kilauea reaches temperatures of 2,120 F. Lava is made of melted rock which is known as magma until it breaches the surface of the Earth.

Figure out exit routes for your residence and place of work. Have an evacuation plan in place and walk your family through it as well.

On the night of Aug 21, 1986, a low lying white cloud grew over Lake Nyos in Cameroon. The cloud was created by a release of carbon dioxide gas at the bottom of the lake, which floated across the ground and into a near by village, where it killed around 1700 people.

Nearly 50% of the fatalities caused by natural disasters in 2012 were due to hydrological events like flooding or mass movements.

Your survival kit should include essentials like food, torch, extra batteries, blankets and water. Analogue maps and paper money come handy if the power grid is knocked out. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends storing at least 3.7 litres of water per person per day, as a normally active person needs at least 1.8 litres daily just for drinking.

The biggest volcanic eruption ever recorded was the explosion of Mount Tambora on Sumbawa Island in 1815. It ranked super colossal on the Volcanic Explosion Index, which is the second highest possible rating. The ash from the eruption column dispersed around the world and lowered global temperatures, leading to worldwide harvest failures in an event sometimes known as the Year Without a Summer in 1816.

Keep your kit in a backpack or gym bag-something that zips up and is easy to carry. Don't get stuck with an unwieldy plastic container or unsealable bag during an evacuation.

“Hurricanes” are large, spiraling tropical storms that can pack wind speeds of over 160 miles an hour and unleash more than 2.4 trillion gallons of rain a day. Hurricanes can be coupled with storm surges and severe flooding.

The Kilauea volcano in Hawaii is the most active volcano on Earth. It’s been continuously erupting since January 3, 1983, recording 61 eruptions, and destroying more than 200 structures.

If you use a hearing aid (or spectacles) and live in an earthquake-prone area, secure the device to your nightstand using Velcro.

Damage paths of tornadoes can be in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long.

Tornado Alley is located in the American Plains states and is one of two regions in the U.S. that record a disproportionate number of tornadoes. Most of the 1000 tornadoes that hit the U.S on an annual basis occur in this region.

Remember your pets. Find out in advance which hotels and shelters allow animals, and stock your pet's medication. Keep a crate and plenty of food ready for your furry friend.

Landslides often accompany earthquakes, floods, storm surges, hurricanes, wildfires, or volcanic activity. They are often more damaging and deadly than the triggering event.

Super Cells, which are essentially enormous thunder storms, create the conditions that produce tornadoes tornadoes. First there must be a wind shear, or a a difference in wind speed or direction, which create a spinning tube of wind. The updrafts and down drafts that are common in super cell storms then pull these tubes into a vertical position creating a tornado.

If the water in your area becomes contaminated, purify it using iodine tablets. Make treated water more palatable by passing it back and forth several times between two separate containers.

Tornadoes can record winds of up to 300mph, which is twice as fast as hurricanes. On May 3, 1999, radar reported a tornado with wind speeds as fast as 302mph.

“Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature. “Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Let family and friends know you are safe by sending a text message. It is more likely to go through than a phone call if cellular networks are overwhelmed. Put together a communication plan with your family in case you are separated during a disaster.

Since 1980, the U.S. has suffered 208 weather-related disasters where damages exceeded 1 billion dollars. In the first part of 2017, there have been five such weather and climate disasters across the United States.

On June 30, 1908, a giant explosion with the magnitude of a 5.0 earthquake shook Siberia. Witnesses described seeing a bright fireball in the sky, and it caused trees to fall, buildings to shake, and people to be knocked off their feet as far as 40 miles away. While many animals were killed in the blast, no humans lost their lives. The explosion is generally attributed to the air burst of a meteorite. It is classified as an impact event, even though no impact crater has been found. The object is thought to have disintegrated at an altitude of 3 to 6 miles rather than hit the surface of the Earth.

Photocopy important documents-passports, licences, wills and insurance forms-and store them in a resealable plastic bag along with recent photos of family members. Use the CamScanner app, or scan each document to create a PDF file, which you can then email to yourself or store using a cloud-based service like Dropbox, iCloud or Google Drive.

Of all natural disasters, earthquakes are both the most unpredictable and the most destructive. While scientists have a pretty good idea of where earthquakes will hit, there are still no scientific methods of predicting exactly when they will happen.

Weather is the main cause of natural disasters, but human activity can play a role in how frequently they occur and in their severity. As we speed the rate of global warming hurricanes have become more common and more severe on average.
