Take your pick or add one IDGAFF[:)]  I think Hurricanes because you never know were the hell they are going to go.

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.

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.

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.
