For questions about naturally occurring phenomena that cause damage and threat to a sentient being, e.g. tornadoes, earthquakes, meteors, etc.

This is for questions about disasters that can have a significant impact on a community, whether it is a town, country or planet. These are specifically for naturally occurring things such as tornadoes (towns, counties), earthquakes (states, countries), meteor strikes (countries, planets) supernovae (planets, solar systems, nearby solar systems).

Questions using this tag may be about how these might occur, what damage they might inflict, and how survivable the aftermath etc.

For severe events, consider also the tag.
