A Naturally Disasterous Quiz

In keeping with other articles regarding natural disasters, it seems appropriate to have a quiz about the topic. Quizzes of this sort can serve to not only increase knowledge but to also have a greater understanding and appreciation of what people go through when natural disasters occur. 

People sometimes don’t like to think about natural disasters, the amount of damage that results, and the often tremendous loss of life. However, by thinking about it and learning about it, we can all be a little more active when it comes to saving our own lives, those of loved ones, and a great deal of property. Mind you, there is nothing we can do to prevent a natural disaster from happening, but people who at least take the time to think about it once in a while are more apt to have emergency plans in place and to survive the disasters when they happen.
