Man has cut forests recklessly to clear the land for cultivation and along with this ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION has taken place, which also affects his life.

They may also prompt evacuations from certain areas and overwhelm behavioral health resources in the affected communities.

A disaster is a serious disruption of the functioning of a community or a society involving widespread human, material, economic or environmental loss and impacts, which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources.

A disaster event caused directly and principally by one or more identifiable deliberate or negligent human action.
