Explain how a natural hazard becomes a disaster?
A hazard is a situation that poses a level of threat to life, health, property, or environment.
A hazard itself is not a problem as long as it doesn’t become active, then it would become an emergency. This is what we call an incident. A disaster would be a very bad incident. When you look at a hazard and the possibility of it becoming an incident, this is what becomes risk.
We are becoming more modern day by day due to the help of the modern science and its applications in our daily life.
But still we are too weak to prevent the rage of the nature.
Different natural hazards like floods droughts, earthquakes etc., are almost non-predictable and non-resistible in a large scale.
These natural hazards destroy the human locality and other natural environments. It’s also causes great financial losses and can even cause death of the humans.
In this way the natural hazard takes form of a disaster.
