Earth is a beautiful place but Mother Nature has known to be vicious. If you want to live a long and healthy life you need to try your best to make sure you're not in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Waterspouts

A reverse tornado occurring over water? Better hope you’re not in a nearby boat when it happens.

Volcanoes

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius was one of the most deadly natural disasters humanity has ever faced. And there are bigger volcanoes that are still active…

Tsunami

As if volcanoes and earthquakes weren’t deadly enough on their own, they can cause tsunamis, or deadly tidal waves.
As recently as 2004, a tsunami hit Indian Ocean coasts, killing 280,000 people.

Cyclone

You might know the word, but do you know what a cyclone actually is?
It’s a rotating body of powerful storm clouds, often appearing as a result of hurricanes.
Hurricane Patricia saw cyclone winds of up to 200 MPH in 2015.

Tornado

This one we all know, thanks to The Wizard of Oz.
They don’t often have high death tolls, but they regularly touch down in the same areas (flat, central) time and time again, causing destruction.

Supercell

As if a thunderstorm wasn’t dangerous enough, supercells combine them with a rotating updraft pulling grounded objects up in terrifying fashion.

Squall Line

These are essentially lines of thunderstorms that contain high winds, lightning, and the possibility of tornadoes.
Not fun stuff.


7 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Polar Vortex

This weather system can bring storms with it as the vortex goes from being polar to warmer. Some of the nastiest storms around start from polar vortexes.

Lightning

Sure, it’s unlikely you’ll ever get struck, but when you do, the shock to your body can be cataclysmic.
Don’t be fooled by its beauty. Take cover away from tall objects if lightning is coming your way.

Landslide

Especially common following flooding, landslides can take on great speed with great mass aided by gravity.
As you could imagine, anything in a landslide’s path has a terrible fate awaiting it.


10 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Ice Storm

It’s just what it sounds like, and they happen so suddenly that people can be trapped in frozen cars or die from hypothermia, not to mention the danger of ice flying through the air.


11 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Hailstorm

When large clumps of irregularly-formed ice fall from the sky, it’s not a good thing. That’s the big (and only risk) from hailstorms, but it’s very real.


12 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Floods

Floods are so dangerous because water can find a way to get everywhere. As we saw following Hurricane Katrina, there’s no escaping the destruction.
They can also happen in most places throughout the world, so floods can become very regular occurrences.


13 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Flammable Ice Bubbles

Sure, they’ve got a funny name, but these are pockets of deadly gas trapped in ice. If temperatures rise and the ice melts, the poison could be released with deadly consequences to those around it.


14 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Extreme Heat Waves

Drought and heat stroke are just two of the deadly consequences that can come about as a result of heat waves, which are especially prone near oceans.


15 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Earthquake

It’s unlikely you need an explanation here, but the shifting earth doesn’t kill people (often). It’s the falling structures, fires, and tsunamis that follow it that do the most damage.


16 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Sink Holes

These curiosities are as deadly as they are interesting.
Bedrocks dissolve, leaving a flimsy structure under the ground. The ground falls out from under us, and the results are deadly and frightening.


17 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Dust Storms

These are scary by themselves, and have been known to kill people, but more often, it’s the flooding that occurs with them that can cause the most damage.

Dirty Thunderstorm

What makes a thunderstorm “dirty?” When it comes part and parcel with a volcanic eruption.
The lightning takes place in the eruption cloud from the ice crystals, and it can dwarf “regular” lightning.

Derecho

This curiosity comes about when storms line up like a conveyer belt, building on the previous’ residue and pummeling the same spots for days on end.
It’s as unpleasant as it sounds.

Blizzard

As deadly as they are beautiful, the snow from a blizzard doesn’t just inconvenience inhabitants, but can actually trap them for days on end.


21 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Avalanches

Though they only effect areas with snow and grades, the torrent of snow can wipe out entire towns and certainly has no problem dispatching a person or two who happens to stand in its way.


22 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Limnic Eruptions

This rarity sees CO2 exploding from a deep lake, killing the people and animals that surround it.
In 1986, one such event killed 1,700 people.


23 Awesome Looking Natural Phenomena That Also Poses A Deadly Threat To Humans (24 pics)

Wildfires

They’re dangerous as a result of their smoke, fire, and heat. But the as they grow, they get harder and harder to stop, so they actually pose the biggest threat to those who are tasked with fighting them
Firejumpers, as they are called, have one of the highest on-job mortality rates of any profession.

#3 REVERSE tornado? It looks like it's spinning counter-clockwise, which is normal for the northern hemisphere. They spin clockwise in the southern hemisphere.

#4 a A cyclone is just a circular wind storm. They include tornadoes and hurricanes (called typhoons in the western Pacific).

Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same weather phenomenon; we just use different names for these storms in different places. In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, the term “hurricane” is used. The same type of disturbance in the Northwest Pacific is called a “typhoon” and “cyclones” occur in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean.
