    Cyclone : is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth
    Flood : is an overflow or accumulation of an expanse of water that submerges land
    Storm : is any disturbed state of an astronomical body's atmosphere, especially affecting its surface, and strongly implying severe weather. It may be marked by strong wind, thunder and lightning (a thunderstorm), heavy precipitation, such as ice (ice storm), or wind transporting some substance through the atmosphere (as in a dust storm, snowstorm, hailstorm, etc).

    Tsunami : is a series of water waves (called a tsunami wave train) that is caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, such as an ocean
    Earthquake : (also known as a tremor or temblor) is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves
    Drought : is an extended period of months or years when a region notes a deficiency in its water supply. Generally, this occurs when a region receives consistently below average precipitation.
