25 Major Natural Disasters That You Will Definitely See In your Lifetime

With each year that passes, the world encounters several occurrences which can be described as calamities. Earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes take place every year, leading people all over to suffer, some to even quite extreme degrees. The weather changes that take place eventually end up affecting all our lives for the worst, and once they’re over, we start to pick ourselves back up again. However, it doesn’t look like things will be changing anytime soon.According to SEAS scientists, wildfires will take place, and they’ll be more destructive than ever. The seasons will last longer, and fires will be larger. There has been a tripling in the rate of wildfires taking place every year as well. At this point, it’s safe to assume that the US will be going up in flames.

Major Solar Storm

Solar flares can cause such huge damage to electronic devices all over the world. It is pretty much the same thing as emitting an electromagnetic pulse which could wipe out all technology. If this does indeed happen, especially with a forecasted solar flare that is beyond anyone’s imagination, we could all go back to the Stone Age with a major blackout in tow. Satellite communications, GPS, radio and every form of technology would be rendered null.

Mount Carmel

Mount Carmel faces a huge risk to this day. It’s neighbor, Centralia, fell victim to a garbage fire which spread throughout coal tunnels underground back in 1962. It can reach all the way to Mount Carmel, and this would lead to sinkholes occurring. Apart from that, toxic gases could very well impact the population’s health for the worst.

Berkeley Pit

The Berkeley Pit had water pumps installed in order to prevent underground water from rising. This was a necessity since copper deposits were found in the area and was turned into a mine. However, the pumps were put to a halt and water started filling up the pit. The water level at this point in time is 1,000 feet deep.

The world’s biggest tsunami in the Caribbean

According to findings by Dr. Simon Day and Dr. Steven Ward, the Cumbra Vieja volcano will lead to the rise of the biggest recorded tsunami. It would travel at up to 800 kilometers an hour at a staggering height of 330 feet. It will also be one of a few tsunamis that could hit the Caribbean, as well as faraway places such as England and Florida. This is the type of stuff you’d see in movies. If it indeed does happen, you’ll be wetting your pants.

Sellafield

The nuclear plant Sellafield was found to release lots of radioactive waste into the Irish Sea. There have been discoveries of mutated fish, which has led researchers and scientists to conclude that it is the most radioactive body of water on the planet. The mine stores all the waste in tanks which are cooled. If the cooling system ends up failing, within 12 hours all radioactive material would be released.
