But really you can track a hurricane and it does move quite slow to allow you to get out of it's path. No disputing it's power though. I would think the worst natural disaster would have to be one that comes out of nowhere, an earthquake or a tornado.

Water related weather events kill more people annually than any other natural phenomenon! Floods, monsoons, etc. Eric The(So,'Other')Hun[>]:)]

I vote for the earthquake. It's capable of multiple damage causing problems. It can cause the ground to shake to shambles and anything standing on it; It can cause a volcano to finally blow its top; It can cause great tidal waves; It can cause fires indirectly from the other problems. Pretty good for one disaster...

SUPER-Volcano... like the one under Jellystone

Before I knew of the Super Volcanoes I would have said Tornadoes or Earthquakes. But with that Super under YellowStone, I know that the penultimate disaster will be that one. Dwarfing everything in the past by several thousand orders of magnitude. Ben

Asteroid impact. Kinda puts everything else into pespective.

well I don't know if you would consider it on your "natural" disaster list, but I would consider viruses as the worst. Just looking at the 1918 flu epidemic, 21 million people died. Who knows what deadly virus is around the corner waiting to strike.

Well, I live in Southern CA so wild fire, earthquake, and tsunamis are some of the things I have to worry about.
