    Pandemic. Not just because of current events, but because it's a global problem. I mean...unless you live in Antarctica, I'd imagine you can't say that the current one hasn't affected you somehow.

    this. yellowstone can cause all of these and even the pandemic due to the ashfall. volcanoes are the Jill of all Trades; master of all.

    That would be the Mary Sue of all Trades.

    You didn't say from earth. You just said natural.

    Gamma ray burst.
    Solar flares.
    asteroids.
    super nova.

    All natural.

    I am going to have to say Other: Asteroid based on earths history, there is no getting around that one, end of life as we know it, next would be a pandemic for sure.

    I suppose it depends...a bit relative
    I'm 50 miles away from the ocean and if I saw a wall of water coming from that direction "terror" would cover my feeling at the moment.
    But for now I don't want to see a tornado. That is the nearest likely natural life changer...

    Any of these, plus pandemic, they can all hit global proportions, even that most pandemics are local.

    Depends on the scale we're talking about. In worst case scenarios it's probably something like if Yellowstone were to go boom.

    Below that it's been a while since we last had something like e.g Krakatoa erupting in the 19th century. An eruption so massive the pressure wave of it rounded the whole earth 3 times over, and could be heard thousands of kilometres away.

    we've had numerous tornados in our state. 3 that have hit my city. one of them came close to hitting ours.

    the scariest for me are the ones that have no warning. so something like an earthquake and a land slide. even a pandemic isn't as scary because there is a brief window of time for people to try and do something before it gets out of hand
    We cannot go back. That's why it's hard to choose. You have to make the right choice. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible.

    Pandemic, although not the corona type, more like Ebola where you bleed out of all your openings, including eyes. It has a very high mortality rate and you die in horrible pain.

    I have to go with pandemic, mainly because it is the only one I have experienced.

    I don’t think Pandemic is a “natural” disaster, so I just ignored that one and voted for Sinkhole. Those things are scary.

    virus and bacteria are part of nature so yes they are.

    That doesn’t mean they’re “natural” disasters. They’re disasters, but not “natural” disasters.

    Humans are part of nature too, for all that we want to believe otherwise.

    One example: Pompeii.

    The volcano erupted with so much fury it wiped out entire ZONES.

    Tornadoes only wreck what's in it's path.
    Hurricanes are predictable as hell these days.
    Tsunami is devastating but you can recover and reconstruct in the area.

    Many pandemics are from prolonged animal-to-human interactions (zoonotic). Look up how we got the chicken pox, for example. Swine flu, etc. This is something that can be avoided with regulations.

    Volcanic eruptions like Pompeii would be a damn near extinction level event. We are overdue for multiple volcanic eruptions
