The Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department reported that 116 districts in 25 provinces remained under water with nearly a million people affected by the floods.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

The artlice shows how much of natural disasters can play an importance to a persons everyday life that has lived through the actual natural disaster. There are many people who have to go through some kind of help or aid after a natural disaster in order to coop with that they've lost or just the tramics of the whole disaster. I agree with the fact that people have to go through with getting some kinda of help because I  can only imagine how hard it would be to get through all of that without any kind of emotion.

Tens of thousands of cattle feared dead after South Dakota storm - Chicago Tribune

Tens of thousands of cattle feared dead after South Dakota storm
Chicago Tribune
"The weekend blizzard already has caused untold devastation," the governor said in a statement.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

I think that this is an important natural disaster due to the fact that it doesn't only involve the animals but, it has a huge weight of devistation on people as well. When the large blizzard took out all of the cattle it took away food supply for the people who live in that area and rely on those cattle for food. Also, it takes money from the farmers who raise the cattle due to devestation and lose of their products.

Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

This is important to natural disaster due to the fact that a cold front can bring multiple disasters which makes it hard for the people to prepare for the disaster. Also, when the disaster hits, its usually hits hard which causes devistation to the people, animals, and the community as one. Also, when a natural disaster hits then, its affecting other parts of the world at the same time.

The risk of flash flooding is limited due to the fast-moving nature of the storm.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

This is a very imprtant topic because I can relate to it by living in Iowa. Tornados are a big natural disaster because they happen so quick but create a large amount of damage. Tornados often can happen in one area but not in an area a mile away from them which make them hard to prepare for other then providing yourself with shelter.I agree with their thoughts on tornados ecpically because I live in tornado valley.

AUSTIN -- The City of Austin closed down trails and Barton Springs Pool after flood waters damaged them.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

This is a important natural disaster because it affecting the parks and trails which often brought in tourism and the country and city could rely on that money in order to keep their country and city up to date and keep the park clean and avaliable for the tourist to continue coming. This also damanged the parks and trails which means they have to find the funds to fix it whcih means they could end up taking out more taxes which will come from the people in the community.

This also affected people from all over the world because multiple countries came over to Kale to help the devisation. Also, it will help them prepare for flooding in the future.

As the strong storm system lifts toward the upper midwest, heavy rains are likely along Interstate 90, which could cause localized flooding.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

This natural disaster is important due to the fact that it happens all of the world. These thunderstorms are good and bad at the same time. Some region that do get thunderstorms have been in a drought and need the water and some region have too much water which causes flooding and then that is when it becomes a natural disaster. Some of the thunderstorms can be destructive which can affect the people, animals and the community which will slowly affect the surrounding areas and will just keep building to affecting the world if these natural disasters keep happening in this area.

Early winter? Blizzards, wet snow hit Wyo., Colo.
Jacob VanderHorst's insight:

This is a majorly important natural disaster due to the fact that it was multiple natural disaster all happenning as one which increases the intensity of each of them. They each have the negative things with them and with all of the together it creates a disaster. Also, it creates fatality and a lot of distruction. Also, it didn't help that it was early in the season because many people weren't prepared for the storm which increases the intensity of the storms.
