Kill and hurt people, destroy homes, and infrastructure


Natural disasters, for example an earthquake can kill people from collapsing buildings and seriously injure many more. Homes are destroyed and in many developing countries they do not have insurance to re-build them. Infrastructure such as sewer and water lines, power lines, natural gas lines can also all be impacted. These can take days or months or even years to repair.
