Title Litany of 'terrible, no good, very bad' things that can happen after the disaster
Date 2004
Description On average, 464 disasters occur each year in all parts of the globe. Some are more catastrophic than others; research reveals that excluding drought, famine and war, approximately 197 take place in Asia, 111 in the Americas, 77 in Europe, 61 in Africa, and 18 in Oceania. As a result, 50,000 people are killed annually, 74,000 seriously injured, 5 million displaced from their homes, and 80 million affected in some peripheral way2. While far less publicized, the resultant damage to cultural property is extraordinary.
