The past decade has been filled with natural disasters. These recent disasters have had drastic consequences on the environment and the people affected. Tsunamis and earthquakes destroyed homes and displaced millions. What are your plans for a natural disaster; do you know what to do?
There are thousands of recorded videos on the internet depicting the tragedies. Here we’ve compiled 10 natural disaster videos captured by surveillance and security camera that do a great job of capturing disasters in action.
Keep in mind, these videos aren’t intended to ignite fear, but rather increase awareness (as is the purpose of The Urban Survivalist) of all the potential dangers out there that would require preparation, in case you are ever caught in such a catastrophic event.

Don’t think that because of the construction of the house this happened. On the contrary, the winds were so fast, 205 mph to be exact, that no matter what the house was made of, it would have been destroyed.

Within just 6 minutes, this Louisiana school is flooded when hurricane Ike comes into town.
