When I was a little girl we lived in the flood district . When it's raining especially with typhoons and hurricanes, the water goes up to my waist ! Sometimes I see little canoe on the street!
Also occasionally we will have earthquakes and I was in two big ones! 7.5 and 8.7 on the scale.
Big buildings collapse near our playgrounds!
Earthquakes and a flood.
I'll only mention the life threatening ones:
two major earthquakes in California, many lives were lost
one major typhoon in the South China Seas, no lives were lost
one major fire on a US Naval ship, two killed, thirty injured.
Flood and Hurriacanes
You always need to have Food Suply, Water Suply and FlashLights

The floor moved and i was like WTF!?
I was in the great hurricane of '87. never forget the scenes of utter devastation the next morning, for which everyone blamed Michael Fish
A tornado; July 31' 1987 Edmonton, AB. Canada. About 10 miles from the eye. It shook my pickup and pounded rain and hail upon us for 20 - 30 minutes just outside the city limits. Then it passed through the outskirts on the east of the city destroying a trailer park and 27 people also.
The aircraft carrier on which I served was returning from the Western Pacific and encountered rough seas whipped up by a typhoon. Walking on board a ship that is pitching and rolling is a bit of an experience. The deck will often rise to meet your foot, or is no longer there when you expect your foot to come in contact with that hard surface.
Hello from a sailor on board the USS Kitty Hawk CVA-63 (1965-66)
USS Bon Homme Richard CVA31 (1967-69) Welcome home.
I have been in so many earthquakes, I was working in sumatera island, indonesia. There was at least one earthquake every other week.
Of course, I'm from California. Always keep a supply of food, water, first aid supplies and ammo on hand in case of emergency.
I have experienced tornados, blizzards and sandstorms
no, here where I live, the atmosphere is peaceful
This past year, there was an earthquake that shook the entire eastern part of USA. My house shook severely for several seconds. I could see the floor move.
