While talking about the major natural disasters that have occurred during the last several years (Japan earthquake, Haiti earthquake, and hurricane Katrina, just to name a few), we thought it would be interesting to look through the history archives of the past 100 years and see which world disasters had the biggest impacts. The results were surprising, especially on the number of people influenced and the monetary damages that the incidents caused.The graphic below displays type of disaster with a brief description of the disaster, number of people injured, lives lost, and monetary damage caused. We hope that this chart will serve as a gentle reminder that we should be prepared at all times for what emergencies may come, not only to help ourselves but also help those that are affected by disaster.(Click image to view larger.) To embed this infographic to your own site, simply copy an paste the following code:
