We all know about horrific, catastrophic natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions… damn, the list just keeps going on! The earth can be pretty terrifying, huh? Today, though, we’re going to look at some less well-known, or at least less regularly discussed natural occurrences that could ruin your day every bit as much as one of those catastrophic events.
The dividing line between a natural disaster, such as an earthquake or a mudslide, and the phenomena we’re going to cover today, is that disasters by definition are rarer, and occur in an isolated manner. That’s why we name storms, we remember the dates of volcanic eruptions, etc. These five terrifying things we’re gonna tell you about? They’re happening all the time.
