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?

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!
I live in Punjab. The land of five waters.I think we are lucky because we never experience any kind of Natural disasters in Punjab except flood, because Geographically, Punjab is
surrounded by lofty mountains on its west, northwest and north. And al
Hello Jasdeep-Singh, thank you for sharing. I am glad you do not experience natural disasters in Punjab, but flooding is frightful to me even, or any kind of rising water. May you continue to be blessed my no natural disasters!
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.
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!
Ouch! We both 'experienced' the phenomena of an unforeseen and unknowable 'natural disaster'. It is a matter of proportion regarding the consequences. We can only measure the consequences, not the 'natural disaster'. The 'natural disaster' simply is.
No sure that our falling down constitutes a natural disaster as in a force of nature. But it still hurts. Most people are killed in their very own homes by some silly accident. Gives one pause for sure.
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.
Oh, Eric, I am too and that may explain my fear of being under tons of earth! 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.
I am just east of 'tornado alley' Theresa, but we still receive them in the west part of our state mostly. The rest of the state does not get as many but it gets them. My area has not received any yet. (Knock, knock)
Kevin, I am so glad you are not normally in the path of tornadoes! I hope you never have to experience a tornado. They are such a strong force of nature and leave sheer destruction in their paths. I am always amazed at those who survive such!
Do not go near the far east, or the US west coast, and I doubt if you have to worry.
Hi Kathleen, Yes, tons of water raging onto the shore, pounding everything in sight, is one thing I never want to experience or see from even the highest mountain tops, as it would still be terrifying. We are used to tornadoes too. @ Thanks Kevin.
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!
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.
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 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!
