If a television is tuned in to any news station, it is likely the anchors are giving information on the natural disasters of the past week, including the scale-breaking Hurricane Patricia, or the 7.5 magnitude earthquake that shook the middle east.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina took the lives of 1,245 people, and Hurricane Patricia was ranked a category 5 hurricane. Although put in the same category, Patricia appeared twice the size of Katrina, with a wind speed of 200 mph, while Katrina sustained wind speeds of 125 mph.

Although a record breaking storm at sea, Patricia showed it was all bark, no bite. While on land, the hurricane died down to a tropical storm with wind speeds of 35 mph, causing flooding and mudslides, which can be dangerous, but not as catastrophic as a category 5 hurricane.

In the eastern hemisphere, an earthquake presented it’s danger on Monday, October 26th, creating a climbing death toll that is now at 384 in Afghanistan, and an astonishing amount of injuries reaching over 1,000. The death toll in Pakistan in over 200, and also thousands of reported injuries from landslides and collapsing buildings.
