As relates to Natural Disasters, which would you be most terrified to experience?


All natural disasters are terrifying to experience. I live in tornado alley, so we have plenty of tornadoes here, as well as hurricanes on the coast, and every now and then a sink hole will appear in other parts of the state in which I live. However, there are so many natural disasters such as fires, lightening strikes, mud slides, flooding, tsunamis, earthquakes, avalanches and volcanic eruptions . For me, I do not live where there are mud slides, thankfully, but to me, that would be most terrifying to be buried by the earth and having no warning!!! How about you?

    Hello CWanamaker, oohh, now that you put it that way, that would be most unbearably horrific. I guess for me about the mud slides would be suffocating. All are terrifying indeed! I appreciate you taking time to answer here.

    See, that is what I am talking about! How terrifying and, yes, the powers that be should have listened and why would they have even taken such a chance! Funny, that I am not bothered much my tornados, but I have not been hit by one directly!

    Ouch, tsmog! I understand. I was walking up to the front of our home that has 10 bricks steps with my arms full and missed a step. My head hit the corner of the door frame. Felt like a skewer went through my brain. Scary indeed!

    Hi Aime F, yes, a tsunami is really terrifying due to one not having much of an escape, like a mud slide. Being under the force of water or earth just would be something I do not even like to think about. Thank you for answering.

    Hi Kevin, yes, we have warnings here too all the time and keep watch of their paths. So far, have not been directly hit but have seen the devastation they cause. The sheer force is unbelievable! Thank you for answering.

    Yes, Sparklea, I can totally relate as to being trapped anywhere, so that may be from where the fear comes and I am so thankful we don't have mud slides here! I have seen one or two but they turned from our path. They hop around so much, who knows!

    Oh, Eric, I am too and that may explain my fear of being under tons of earth! Thank you for answering.

    Do not go near the far east, or the US west coast, and I doubt if you have to worry.

    Thank you so much, Snowman, for leaving such an extensive answer. Your hubber name reminds me that I left out blizzards. Earthquakes are terrifying knowing the earth is opening up!

    Hi AngeShearer, Yes, I have seen the total destruction tornadoes leave behind. They are certainly a great force of nature!!! We have them here, but I have been blessed to not be in the direct path on one.

    Hi Lybrah, we live in tornado alley so we are used to them but have never been directly hit by one. They have caused great devastation in our state. Me too, even on higher ground, just the thought of rising water coming with such a force!
