Top 10 Scariest Natural Disasters

The Top Ten
1 Tsunami

When you see a Tsunami, you aren't going to have Aquama to save you. Your screwed and that's that. You will either drown, killed by whatever aquatic animals live in the waters in the flood, impaled by debris or shards of remaing parts of buildings and other things, knocked out, or the aftermath of flooding and debris kills you. There's a 96% chance that you will die. The other 4% doesn't occur often. So if you see a 10 story tsunami hurtling towards you, you could try to run but I doubt you'd get very far before it sweeps you off your feet.

You wake up and look outside at the beach. All the water recedes miles and miles backwards. You stare at a strange white line on the horizon. It is a wave 20 Meters tall and it's coming for you. You try to pack up and run but it's too late, the wave slams into the beach and crashes through the resort. Your underwater floating...floating...and then your dead.

You're at the beach, relaxing- then, a huge eruption of screams is heard. You see in the distance- a wave, far, far larger than any you've seen before- a wave of fear hits you, all the warmth in your body has vanished- and you can hardly move. You struggle to get to your car, but as you pull out, the traffic of other cars blocks your way. You open your door and step outside, to see the wave smack the ground, a slice of water heading right for you.

You can't track them... well, normal people can't, unless you carry a huge device around wherever you go. They kill more than tornadoes... you can TRACK tornadoes by looking at the doppler radar, but tsunamis? Try to look for tsunamis on there!

2 Earthquake

It can happen without warning. Buildings fall down, people run through the streets. Other disasters can come from it. It causes the tsunamis and landslides that killed hundreds of thousands. The 2004 tsunami was caused by a magnitude 9 earthquake. Plus, there's the fires that rage on due to destroyed gas lines. You can't escape, because roads have been destroyed. Electricity goes out, and you can't get running water because pipes are destroyed. The downed power lines serve as a hazard. There's rubble and glass in the streets, and you might be trapped under it. And it gets worse as smaller earthquakes called aftershocks follow.

You're sitting at home when the earth begins to rumble. The house begins to rock like a boat. Things tumble off shelves and it just gets stronger. You watch pieces of ceiling collapse as the floor rocks from side to side. Suddenly the ceiling collapses and your dead.

There's usually a lot of natural disasters that occur due to other natural disasters. Earthquakes are so unexpected that you have no warning, no time to prepare, nothing. All you can really do is hold on to whatever sturdy thing you are closed to for dear life and pray that you'll be okay.

I would say earthquake because you can't predict it. I was in kos (greece) this summer during a 6.7 earthquake and it was scary as hell and the aftershocks made it even worse. Although the fear of a tsunami also freaked me out at the moments after the earthquake. A 6.7 earthquake already made a huge impact on me, I wouldn't think about a 9 earthquake like in japan...:o

3 Tornado

Your driving your car when suddenly you spot a funnel in the distance. You keep driving as it's miles away but it keeps moving towards you. Heavy rain falls and the winds pick up. Suddenly out of nowhere the funnel touches on top of you. You and your car are thrown to the side. The windows break as you fell the car rip up. Your knocked out of the car and thrown to the ground and killed.

Someone did survive a tornado by hanging on to a fence but most of the time, if you are within distance of a tornado and not inside in the basement or windowless shelter, then you will probably be swept off your feet. I personally think tornados are the scariest since I live in a state where lots of tornados happen. You can predict them and there are sirens to alert you and the news but it's still scary. The strange thing about a tornado is that they move in a very odd pattern. If you live in a suburban neigborhood, then the house next to you could be destroyed into thousands of pieces and then the house in front of yours would get destroyed and then the house on the other side of yours could get destoryed. I've seen News casts of neighborhoods that have had this occurance. Never underestimate a tornado because even if it was an F1, it could quickly develop into something much worse. Always be alert when there is a tornado.

Not as deadly as other disasters, but the suspense is what really gets you. The whole sky turns dark, things get eerily silent & then the tornado makes the eeriest of noise. Then a black funnel of death materializes & slowly approaches you. You can suffocate, get crushed by debris, get trapped or even get sucked up & tossed to your death. There can be hundreds of them at a time, some even enormous EF5 tornadoes, with the destructive capacity to eat your entire house. And there is very little warning before they appear.

People tsunamis and earthquake are predictable and people can be prepare. Volcano and meteors happen like every millennium. Now lets talk bout tornadoes picture a big dark swirling cloud that's as tall as any skyscraper. Now picture getting a alert 20 minutes after it hits. Ever been sucked out your safety unexpectedly? You fear the ground moving and water wait till you see a little straw turn into razor sharp projectiles that pierce brick and concrete by the way happens a lot more then yall know

4 Hurricanes, Cyclones and Typhoons

These monsters always ravage up the Florida coast every late summer and early autumn. Thanks to them I now suffer from PTSD but am too broke to move out of this dangerous state.

Hurricanes are the most deadly natural disaster ever. Tornadoes have the highest wind speeds, but hurricanes have the most power. Look at these two hurricanes. Odile: Deadliest storm surge than any other hurricane. Katrina: The costliest hurricane in U.S. history. THIS SHOULD BE #1!

When there was a hurricane in 2012, I was on vacation. My dad was driving fast so we could get home. When I turned around and saw the hurricane. But it was far from us and brown.

MY top ten worst hurricanes #1 hurricane Katrina. #2 hurricane Mitch #3 hurricane Wilma #4 hurricane Andrew #5 hurricane Camille #6 hurricane Irma #7 hurricane sandy. #8 hurricane Mathew. #9 hurricane Ivan #10 hurricane Isabel

5 Volcano

It's not just the lava that's the deadliest. It's the aftermath also. You have time to evacuate before the volcano explodes. Once it does, the lava could flow for miles, burning everything in its path. I've seen CACCOONS of people covered in ash and tar. Even when you escape, the gases and radiation from the volcano can be even more deadly than the lava itself. The gases are water vapor which isn't dangerous but when it combines with carbon dioxide, it could spread for miles and miles, suffocating anything. The vapor could also mix with hydrogen flouride which is even more deadly. So even when you think you are safe, just remember that these gases can spread a vast range of miles.

Every natural disaster here (maybe except for hurricanes and definitely volcanoes) end in a short amount of time. Volcanoes don't just erupt. They spread, they kill a whole part of the ocean, they cover a whole island with ash, they burn everything in their path, cause forest fires, and were contagious. No human had ever found out a way to survive a volcano...

Sheer silence, and suddenly, a huge eruption sound- filled with dark skies. You go outside, met with sudden coughing, and the skies are pitch black. You see in the distance a light that is growing larger, and realize that Yellowstone has erupted.

Good lord! How is this not higher? How would you like to suffocate in a humongous blob of pyroclastic flow, or better yet- be burnt to a crisp? How would you like the flesh to melt off your skin? I vote this to be higher than tsunami.

6 Sinkhole

There is a story of a man who was chillin' at home, when all of a sudden, a sinkhole opened up in the middle of his bedroom- his brother rushed their, and, as the man was sinking into the sinkhole, his brother tried to save him- to no avail. The man emitted his final screams, and his body was never found, despite numerous attempts.

Sinkholes seem like the longest, excruciating deaths you could have with a natural disaster. Tysunamis can drown you and it takes appoximately three minutes to die when drowning. Sinkholes on the other hand sound way worse. Just the though of suddenly being swallowed up by the ground and closed in inside the earth. You quickly suffocate and slowly die. It's already your own grave.

This is like being buried alive and no one can go rescue you because its way too dangerous and the sinkhole might close up! And even if you are still alive after you fall you can't get out you have to wait for your death!

Ou fall in a huge hole in the world out of nowhere than you get barried alive..tsunamis scare me too but sinkholes can happen anywhere at any time and I don't think anyone has ever survived a sinkhole incident..

7 Flood

Even if you don't drown and you dread the waters, the flow of the rapids could swallow you under, debris impales you, or you get attacked by a ten foot gator or snake.

I never experienced this.

8 Acid Rain

U can't us an umbrella so duck for cover ohh wait your already dead

9 Forest Fire

Honestly I will feel safer if a fire was Godzilla.

10 Asteroid Impact

The radiation from the asteroid could poison and suffocate anything nearby such as plants and animals maybe humans. It killed the dinosaurs which could withstand injuries and chemicals better than we can but it still killed them. Thanks to the technology these days, I think we'd be able to spot if there's an asteroid army hurtling towards earth.

It killed the Dinos so we should be afraid of this more than tsunamis or earthquakes! (not to mention meteors manipulate other natural disasters)

This could destroy the whole planet. An asteroid is basically a cosmic nuke.

The Contenders
11 Avalanche

Would you be happy if a huge jumble of rocks was crashing down right behind you and you had no way to stop it? Didn't think so

12 Gamma Ray Burst

There is a theory that a gamma ray burst from a star light years away may have caused one of the biggest mass extinctions in this planet's history with the Ordovician period. If one were to hit us right now we'd be toast, literately.

Probably not going to happen for thousands, maybe millions of years, but if it did happen, it would be scary!

We'll all be hulks

13 Thunderstorm

I have a crazy fear of lightning b/c I think it will kill me with fire! I don't understand how everyone else acts so CALM when there's a thunderstorm. Even though I know that hardly any people are killed by it.

Have you seen pictures of this? Even if its not life threatening, its scary as... heck.

Deadly, but 1/700,000 chance to be struck, and even if you do get struck, you can survive (don't know how people manage to survive 50,000 Fahrenheit temperature, which is MANY times higher than lava!)

Only one person got struck. I saw

14 Waterspout

Not really that scary as soon as it gets to land it doesn't sort of dies. But just imagine fish or other living creatures dropping out of the air

15 Pandemic

This should be number 1. If you give a Donald Trump a pandemic, he uses it to destroy the country. "You don't need me to tell you everything is a mess. Donald Trump is destroying our country..." - Billie Eilish.

When epidemics reach greater proportions, you get a pandemic. Most disasters are scary enough, but few have the power to wipe out all of humanity like a pandemic does.

16 Landslide

Imagine hiking a mountain, the blazing sun shining against your forehead, and your walking stick knocks down small pebbles. Then, a faint rumbling sound is heard - growing louder, and louder, suddenly, you see millions of boulders tumbling down your way - imagine the sinking feeling of knowing that is your last moment on earth.

17 Bushfire
18 Blizzard

In certain regions, blizzards are so bad you can't even see more than 4 or 5 meters in front of you.

19 Drought
20 Fire Swirl

A tornado made out of fire how do you survive. But still not as scary as a tsunami.

21 Flash Flood
22 Whirlpool
23 Vortex
24 Sandstorm

Deadly sand dust

25 Pyroclastic Flow
