Where are the world's natural disaster danger zones?

This article takes a look at some of the major natural disaster events that occurred in 2017 and more importantly, where the danger hot spots are currently located.

A torrent of natural disasters was unleashed on the world in 2017 which is exactly what the World Economic Forum had predicted. In its Global Risks Report it put extreme weather events as the number one global risk in terms of likelihood, and major natural disasters as number three.

Here, we focus on The United Nations University World Risk Report, which takes into account not only the force of the natural event, but also the ability for people to get assistance in the event of an emergency. You'll discover how this relates to 2017's disasters and the implications for the affected areas.
