Natural disasters are another name for unforeseen situations. No one can predict the occurrence of such incidents or their aftermath. But foresightedness can go a long way to prepare you for any instance. Disasters are upsetting and can impact people most negatively. Disasters can lead to mental distress and can cause damage and loss of life, property, and happiness. Proper disaster management is mandatory, and people need to stay calm during such situations.

Let’s understand disastrous calamities:
● Every person in the vicinity of a natural disaster is affected by it somehow or the other.
● People tend to become anxious about their safety and their family, and this feeling is normal.
● Profound anger, grief, and anxiety are plausible reactions to catastrophes, and every individual in the scene can experience them.
● Acknowledging the negative emotions can help cope with the adverse situation.

Children and senior citizens are most affected by natural calamities and need particular attention. People who learn about the incident from a virtual medium like media coverage or radio can also get severely affected.

The first thing to do when natural disasters like wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes, or earthquakes occur is to seek help from the nearest hospital or police station. If nothing is an available option, one must call helplines, voluntary organizations, or rescue departments. This will ensure minimum life loss. Additionally, the local state government and FEMA can provide assistance and crisis counseling to every victim of the situation.

A natural disaster can have an everlasting impact on the sanity and mind of any individual, no matter how healthy they have been throughout t
