It may seem as though the Earth is trying to harm us, but there is actually a logical reason behind every natural disaster. In this BrainPOP UK movie you’ll find out about the different kinds of disasters that strike the world: from hurricanes and tornadoes to floods and droughts; volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and wildfires. In this educational, animated movie you’ll learn about their causes and the damage they create, plus how sometimes there is also a benefit to be gained. You’ll learn, too, about the progress of prediction science and how government and humanitarian agencies step in to assist the victims. We may not be able to prevent a natural disaster, but we can certainly have a family plan and ready kit available for emergencies. So, as the Scouts say: Be prepared!
